Saskia Coolen, her many recorders and I hope to visit the States in 2015-2016. We are now preparing a series of courses and workshops for ensembles (advanced amateurs and professionals), dedicated to the study and performance of my music for recorders.

We are now preparing a series of courses and workshops for ensembles, dedicated to the study and performance of my music for recorders.
In addition, we will bring some newly written ensemble pieces (more in the ‘Recorders without Borders’ series) and Saskia will play the premiere of a new virtuoso work for recorder solo, or possibly even a concerto or concerto grosso, the different parts of which can be played by participants in the courses – a fascinating experience to work on a new piece, both for composer and performers!
- Interpretation and ensemble playing: interlocking patterns, rhythmic and melodic awareness
- Rhythm and rhytmic articulation
- combining a tight rhythm with free phrasing
Below is a list of works from solo to larger ensembles with links to the works. If you have any questions concerning programming, performance, or publications, you are kindly requested to mail me!
