Musik for Film and Television (6-CD) # DFK (Score CD) this 6-CD set with 246 tracks, a duration of 474 minutes and a detailed booklet, is limited to 500 copies: "For more than 20 years now, Enjott Schneider has shaped our film- and television scene in a unique way with his emotionally gripping and at the same time demanding compositions. It was time to unite as many of the resulting highlights in a full set. Alhambra Records accepted this challenging task and, with this 6-CD set, presents a detailed showcase full of variety and surprises: from his emphatic Second World War film scores (Stalingrad, March of Millions (Die Flucht), Nicht alle waren Mörder), the genre fairytale (King Thrushbeard, The Frog Prince, The Goose Girl), horror (Das Tal der Schatten), drama (Die andere Frau, Rosemary (Das Mädchen Rosemarie)), documentation (Munich '72, Felipe and Letizia - the tamed Princess (Die gezähmten Prinzessin), The great Dictators (Die Großen Diktatoren) to significant movies (Charlie and Louise, 23), as well as the theme music for the Zoo TV series Giraffe, Meerkats and Co. (Giraffe, Erdmännchen und Co.) : almost every genre is well-represented. Of particular appeal: this set is the first to document thematically Enjott Schneider's compositions for two films - both in Stalingrad (film of 1992, documentation of 2002. ), as well March of Millions (documentary film of 2003, ARD two-parter of 2007). This 6-CD set with more than 474 minutes of music also includes a comprehensive booklet of 40 pages with detailed descriptions and numerous illustrations. Set is limited to 500 copies"

MARCO POLO – a monumental opera in Guangzhou & BeijingExciting News in may 2018: Sometimes silent as my election as official member of the „Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts“ or my nomination as „Honorary Artistic Advisor“ of Guangzhou Opera House. Sometimes with frenetic applause as the performances of my opera MARCO POLO (composed and sung in chinese language) in Guangzhou and Beijing. All over China it was a sensation in media and cultural life.
Latest CD „MAGIC OF IRREALITY“ WERGO/NaxosEnthusiastic reviews of the latest CD „MAGIC OF IRREALITY“ at Label WERGO distributed by NAXOS with two double concertos, recorded october 2017 with Siberian State Symphony Orchestra (Vladimir Lande, conductor) in Krasnoyarsk: Jiemin Yan (Erhu) and Wen-Sinn Yang (Cello) playing ISOLDE & TRISTAN, Otto Sauter (piccolo trumpet) and Sergei Nakariakov (flugelhorn) playing DREAMDANCERS.
Turbulent and wild..... but a creative summer 2017During my intense work with Chinese language, culture and history while composing the MARCO POLO opera, some very personal insights also happened. For example, the Chinese proverb: "If the roots are deep, the wind is not to be feared". In fact, even impossible things can be accomplished if everything is deeply rooted in one's own will and nature.
News Fall 2016 until Spring 2017"Creativity as a whirlwind, news from end 2016 to spring 2017". So many concerts and world premieres, encounters with people and (natural) musicians, composition of new works, projects, ideas.
...via music connected with friends all over the worldMAKING MUSIC IN THE 7x24 MODE... with all the consequences: composing, being in charge of editions (horrible job of "proofreading"), world premieres, repeated performances, travels and living at the airport ( Berlin, Paris, Madrid, Stockholm, Gdansk, Cologne, Taipei, Beijing), rehearsals and conducting, CD productions... luckily all of the above is combined with friendship and wonderfully inspiring encounters... being a musician could be a dream job, if there weren't the increasing exploitation of the data giants and the "all-for-free" mentality of the music users. Therefore, I'm putting so much time into cultural policy (Berlin-Brussels-current amendment of the legal systems) as President of the German Composers Association, in order to fight for a touch of a livable future for my colleagues...
