Two Dorian Poems

Recently, panpipes player Mariana Preda asked me if I could compose a piece for her instrument. I decided to give a slow piece which I composed in 2012 a finishing touch and add a new fast movement to it. The key is Dorian. After finishing the first Dorian piece, I composed a small work at the piano. At the piano the Toccatina sounded fine but it was not suitable for panpipes. Undernearth the score of the Two Dorian Poems for panpipes you will find the Toccatina. So, I went on composing and could succeed: two-dorian-poems

I hope to hear the Two Dorian Poems played by Mariana in the near future.


Carillon Concerts America

In the summer of 2016 I gave fifteen carillon recitals in the USA. The carillon journey has been a wonderful experience and will hopefully be the break through of an international career as carillonneur. My girlfriend Ruth Sonco Tello accompanied me and was a great help and support. I was very pleased with the kindness of the hosts and happy about the beauty of the bell towers and carillons. I wrote an article about the journey named On Tour to Uncle Sam: on-tour-to-uncle-sam

Underneath I published a selection of photo’s and videos of the carillons and towers as well as some personal pictures. In the USA I composed a small composition for the two-octave carillon of Ooltewah: poem-for-ooltewah
