As part of the concert “On the Movies”, which featured music from prominent composers such as Hans Zimmer, Alan Silvestri, Henry Mancini or Leonard Bernstein, my piece “Cherry Blossom Dance” has been premiered on the the 14.06.2019 by the Philharmonie Baden-Baden, conducted by Judith Kubitz.
The concert, being part of “Rendezvous Classique”, which is an open air concert series usually happening throughout summer in the Musikpavillon Baden-Baden, was quite a success considering the weather throughout the day wasn’t quite what we hoped for.
“Cherry Blossom Dance” was composed during my work on the music for “Kheer Tal” and was originally intended to be an actual part of
it. I very quickly realized that the piece works much better as a standalone piece for symphonic orchestra than what I intended it to be in the first place.
It’s quite the challenge to perform due to its driving nature, it’s quite fragmented orchestration and high tempo.
Below you can listen to Cherry Blossom Dance:
After 3 years, the creation of 'We're Going on an Adventure' comes to an end, from this day on my new album will be available in several online stores and also spotify:
The release concert with Philharmonie Baden-Baden was quite a success and was a cocktail of emotions, ranging from excitement to tension to happiness. My deepest thank goes to Judith Kubitz who supported me throughout the last years and allowed me to grow, both as a composer and a human beeing.
I’m very(!) excited to finally, and officially, announce the upcoming release of my new album ‘We’re Going on an Adventure‘.
The album will be released on the 5th November and will be purchasable on ITunes, Amazon and Bandcamp, you will also be able to stream it on Spotify. There will also be a limited amount of physical CD's available!
‘We’re Going on an Adventure’ is the result of a 3 year journey for me. I was working on and off on it and some of the tracks where the catalysts of finally allowing me to work with a real orchestra and experience something many composers seldom get the chance to, I feel absolutely blessed to have made these experiences.
The album features a total of 10 tracks and each track explores an emotion one could face in a journey from beginning to end.
Over the next couple of weeks you’ll hear and see more from me, lots of exciting stuff is coming up!
