L. van Beethoven: Ode to Joy - Symphony No. 9
OFFICIAL!!! The new video release is out now on my YouTube Channel. Link in bio!
After more than one year of preparations, recording sessions, production calls and some life ups and downs I finally can share it with you.
The „Ode to Joy“ from Beethoven‘s 9th Symphony is one of the most famous works written by Beethoven and at the same time one of the best known classically works ever. People also know it as the European hymn.
As a frenetic fan of Beethoven and a European citizen it was a double boost for me to put this arrangement for violin on paper.
Soon the score will also be available on my Patreon for anybody who wants to play this piece as an encore on his or her next concert.

P. I. Tchaikovsky: Premiere "June" arrangement now on Youtube
It’s time to share with you some thoughts and first insights of my new Youtube video.
Tchaikovsky’s „June“ one of my favorite pieces since my childhood and it was “love at first sight”.
It inspired me to write my own arrangement for violin and piano of this song.
This music combines soulful melancholy, mysterious sadness and the crucial understanding that even a vivid summer month like June will sooner or later come to an end.

Live Concert & Recording - Novacek's "Perpetuum mobile"
No chargers for iphones needed and no gasoline stations for cars anymore! Ever thought of a never stopping machine that doesn't need neither batteries nor electricity? A mechanism with infinite energy would be the greatest invention of the future!
Violinist and composer Ottakar Novacek was clearly inspired by that idea more than 100 years ago. He liked this idea so much that he composed a piece for violin and piano that seemingly never runs out of batteries. Therefore the violin has to play many fast semi quaver notes that could go on and on forever. It seems that the little notes are producing the required energy to make the piece "flow".
Does a Perpetuum mobile exist! What do you think?
This video is a live recording from the Online Streaming Concert with the Grand ART Ensemble.
