More than 100 musicians from all over the world have got together to form the virtual “United Mandolin & Guitar Orchestra”, in order to perform the piece CONNECTED by André Herteux (arr. Maren Trekel). The composer collected all contributions and turned them into this wonderful video:
I uploaded a video of LAMENTO, a requiem for my dear friend Eva, to Youtube:
Eva sadly died of cancer in November 2009. She would have turned 80 today.
The sheet music is also available for download.
My first work for three guitars was finished yesterday. I call it sarek after the national park in northern Sweden.
The piece is dedicated to three very gifted guitarists who I am fortunate enough to know from the LJZO Brandenburg/Berlin.
There is an area now where I briefly introduce my instruments. The page is to be found in the “About me” menu which contains also my biography now.
A recording of my variation cycle “Die sechs Ansichten des Kirchturms zu Springiersbach” (The six views of the steeple in Springiersbach) for guitar solo is now available on Youtube:
Composing is like doing a puzzle of notes

The pieces for guitar solo are available for download as PDF. The other works will follow shortly.
