Description of Style

As a student of Karl Schiske he at first oriented himself at the succession of Weber (with exception of the children's opera he composed with 17 years and which was more committed to Orff and Bartók). Later, departing from "Vier fantastischen Skizzen für Bläserquintett", the musical component won more emphasize. In the foreground stand good playability and singability, which at last is not only the result of own versatile musical practice. Almost all works are commissioned pieces, which means it's already predetermined , who will perform the respective work.
