I took private lessons in composition by Franz-Josef Streuff from 1982-1987. Then I began to study composition at the "Musikhochschule" of Cologne by Jürg Baur (1918-2010, http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C3%BCrg_Baur) and later Krzysztof Meyer (*1943, http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krzysztof_Meyer). I finished my composition lessons by Mr. Streuff with a final piano solo recital with only compositions by myself in April 1987 in my old school, Nelly-Sachs-Gymnasium in Neuss. I finished my studies as a Young Student (german: Jungstudent) in the subject "composition" when I made my final school examinations (german: Abitur) in 1991. In Wintersemester 1991/1992 I began my studies in school music and german literature and philology at the "Musikhochschule" and University of Cologne. Here you can listen to some of my works.
Chris Breemer is my friend from the Netherlands. He is a great hobby-pianist and site-administrator of www.pianosociety.com, where you can find nearly all my recordings as mp3-files (also four hands and chamber music). We like to play original four hands music, but also arrangements of symphonic works. So you can listen here to some movements of Smetanas "Ma Vlast" and Mozarts first movement of the famous g-minor symphony (KV 550), but also to the complete set of the Slavonic Dances op. 72 by Dvorak and some of the set of op. 46, which we plan to complete next time.
Here I play some of Chopins piano works. I think, the first piece, first version of Scherzo Nr. 3, op. 39, c-sharp-minor, is my best one. I have played all of the Scherzi and ballads by Chopin. These and some more of my recordings of Chopins piano works you can find on pianosociety.com.
