Description of Style

I cannot and will not describe my "style". I'm not a  manufacturer of detergents who must advertise his product. All I can say - and this is not very smart - is that I want to write music that will satisfy myself in every respect and that I can only hope that I will succeed in achieving at this aim . Music that I like myself, will (eventually) also please others - provided that my taste is not abnormal. Then the mission could be fulfilled ...
