I finished to rewrite the ten piano pieces (introduction to contemporary music) now for marimba. I had a wonderfull help from Julián Garcia Peña a master student conservatorium Bogota.  He checked every number and gave me good tips. Thank you Julian. The composition is now to the publisher. Julian will perform some pieces if he has a recital.

I just finished a composition, an elegy for oboe solo: Niobe. Based on the greek mythe of Niobe whose fourteen children were murdered and she never stopped crying, like all the mothers who lose their children in all the wars in the world, their hearts always will cry.

Aysin Kiremitci oboist of the Borusan Filarmoni Orkestrasi Istanbul and lecturerer conservatory Istanbul, is studying the piece now. She wil play it with a oboe and and oboe d'amore.

And I'm always looking for some performers for certain pieces that have already been released but not yet officially played, feel free to ask, because I still have some unusual combinations. Maybe there's something for you.
See list of compositions.
Foli
I have completed my composition for double bass. The composition is about Africa and the title is Foli: it means there is no movement without rhythm. Perhaps there are still double bass players for this composition.
 
Chant the Printemps
started a new PR round.
 
Schicksal
The Haarlem trio wants to perform 'Schicksal' composition about a painting by Franz Marc (Tierschicksale), in the Azijnfabriek in 's-Hertogenbosch, Isabel Vaz (cello), Daan Treur (piano) and Natasa Gruic (violin). This time Natasa was abroad so pieces have now been performed for duo. Descending to Avalon (cello solo) and Piano Painting (piano) For the time being 'Schicksal' has been put aside until the trio's next performance if it still exists.
 
Phenomenal Woman
Kaiyi Min (soprano) will rehearse 'Phenomenal Woman', if possible perform it. But please also other candidates.
 
The cuckoo on the tower sat
  The piece is published by DMP/Metropolis, it is the 24th edition. Find another good chorus. It is currently waiting for Maike Warmoeskerk. The Meike Choir in Dinteloord will perform it next year
 
Cosmic Butterfly
My violin/cello composition "Cosmic Butterfly" has been completed, it has become an exciting piece. Cor Coppoolse and Irene Bossier are interested in implementing it in due course
 
Lost in a winter world
For harp solo, nice piece with effects, find another daredevil. Carla Bos dares to do it and will carry it out this winter.
 
Mizu no Oto
A composition about a Japanese garden written in a Japanese way. composition for harp and violin.
 
Moon and Awaking
I am still looking for performers for two clarinet/cello pieces. One is Moon, which shows all the phases of the moon and the other is Awaking written in the style of Messiaen. Pierre Lafay (clarinet teacher Groningen conservatory) has played through the clarinet part and thinks it is a very good piece. Looking for performers now.
 
Brian Nelson in South Africa will soon be studying it with a cellist, whose name I don't know yet.
See also compositions when you are looking for some piece.

The Shadow

Music to a fairy tale by Hans Cristiaan Andersen for flute and bass flute will be published soon. I have already received the proof.
 
Is now with a Helen Hendriks , who wants to make a recording in a studio and compile both parts and she is thinking about making an arti film with it. With (sculpted) figures that are then illuminated in such a way that the shadow literally takes on a life of its own.
