I'm coming to Germany for concerts with my own music!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

Well, anyone who knows me you know I'm from Sweden, composing new classical music. Guess my luck when I was approached in December by a german string quartet wanting to play MY music in the Ludwighafen area this fall. Actually four concerts just two weeks from now... see photo.

I wrote this piece - an oboe quintet - that they heard on youtube and wanted to perform. Now during the months gone we have agreed for me to re-write it for flute and string quartet just because we feel it would sound better. 🙂

So I've asked for a week off from my teaching job here in Sweden to come down for two of the four performances. It will be fantastic, not only the cred and the music but also visiting "The Tuscany of Germany", as someone called the area!

It is postcard perfect, and very beautiful down there. 

So, any of our German HFC'rs wanting to join me there on the 5th or 6th of October - you are warmly welcome for this nice classical event. 

All the best to you all, 

/Curt Wrango

That is fantastic! I was raised on baroque, classical, and romantic music, while my brother majored in "legit" music so I'm in awe of anyone who can master this kind of composition. Can you share a YouTube link?

It surely is! A free concert series with both old and new music!

Yes, if it'll be recorded I'll post it. It's just a couple of weeks until the concerts  are on! 

Thanks for your interest for my music! 🙂

I think one time they had made a violin bass at least.

Just to make sure, you're only playing those weekend shows with that quartett and not the date on Oct. 17th? Because that gig is actually in the building I work.

Sentinel is the composer, not a player. I actually plan to visit the concert in Heidelberg too, for having my wife joining. It did not work out for this weekend.

That's a fact. Just visiting from Sweden for a week. As "the" composer I only listen. The quartet is playing all shows. 

But come and have a listen, then please tell me what you think about my music

😀

/.Thanks

It had been a great joy to meet Sentinel at the Deutsche Weinstrasse. The smell of fresh wine was everywhere as had been the wine (of course). We had dinner together with two people from the Streichquartett, a nice talk in the night and breakfast in a local bakery. We both agreed that Hamer guitars are simply the best.

Many thanks Sentinel for your time and great music!

The HFC, again, brought great people together!

Just noticing that we missed out on the classic selfie! I'm lazy taking pics recently.

Thanks for seeing me I Hainfeld, Gorch! Yes it was really nice (as it usually is meeting HFC'rs irl.) having a chat, a dinner etc!

For photos (selfie or not) i combined two separate pix from the dinner to make one!!

Gorch on the left and me Sentinel to the right!

The concert with my flute quintet was terrific and a small success for me. Excellent musicians! 😎

(I'll post audio when I get back home from Germany!)

Not sure I can make it Thursday even if it's in the building I work. Thurdays is always full of appointments after work.
