This is a well crafted Etude, Andreas. I didn't know that you composed music? It's tricky to maintain the 12-tone continuity throughout, but you maintain a good sense of form, which most "composers" lack these days. I admit I wasn't sure where you were going to go thematically, but the suspense was worth the wait. Now you need to follow it up with 1 or 2 more Etudes to make a nice little set.


Thanks for your encouraging words, George. :D Yes, the form-aspect is quite often neglected these days, though not by all composers. For me it´s indeed an important matter. I think, we are in a great and long occidental tradition of music and we have so many great types of form and traditional ideas we can play with in a new creative way. I think there are two groups of composers: those, who want threw away all tradition and those, who want continue it in a new way. I´m counting myself to the last group! (And I also think, Jürg Baur, my teacher, was one of the last group for sure.)

So, I see that you fell for the 3D craze?... Too bad I through away my 3D glasses. Keep up the composing!


I really wished to have more time for composing, but somehow my creativity through the last 22 years was concentrated more on the interpretation of music. I have composed quite a lot of pieces between 1981 and 1990. But thanks for your encouraging words!

Hi Chris and/or Monica,
wouldn´t you like to put my little "Zwölftonetüde" up to the main-site, though I have improved the tags? Certainly you have much to do and just forgot it?! Sorry, that I remember you, but I just have seen this morning, that my file still has the amount of downloadings under it, so it isn´t on the main-site yet. (The category of "miscellanous" seems adequate to me.)
