The producer of the new Oehms Classic-CD SINGPHONIKER: CHATROOM & OTHER WORKS BY ENJOTT SCHNEIDER, Dieter Oehms, refused to include the lyrics of "CHATROOM" in the CD insert, - on reasons of unsuitability for young people! - Such an inquisitorial measure is beyond comprehension in our day and age, - as children see and hear things that are far worse in any afternoon program on RTL. Moreover, it is fact that this kind of chat language is of the highest literary level (why else would more that 50 recent dissertations deal with communication and language structures in Chat). - To cut a long story short: My agent Dr. Andreas Janotta has now produced a CD insert that contains both the lyrics as well as the note - also missing in the Oehms CD - that I was the conductor of the Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss and that I conducted the CD on German Radio Cologne in May 2012. So, here are the lyrics:
European premiere: OPER "MARCO POLO" in Milan and GenovaFrom September 22 to October 1, the European premiere of my opera "MARCO POLO", composed in Chinese and commissioned by the Chinese government, took place in Milano and Genova (Italy). After the three productions in China this European tour was now a successful test.
Passion and discovering new worlds...New Works, new CD.... composing out of passion
Lots of concerts... and being Member of JuryNot only "world premieres" are important for composers life, - but also the repeating of performances to bring the compositions into the common repertoire. And not to forget: working as Jury member in competitions is a very responsible work, leading young artists to their future!
WORLDPREMIERE "SPIRITS OF SIBERIA""SPIRITS OS SIBERIA" is fascinating with a world of shamanic Power and with omnipresent siberian Spirits at the festival ASIA - SIBERIA - EUROPE. Reinhold Friedrich (Trumpet) is celebrated with standing ovations.
POWER OF PAST - FINDING THE FUTURE IN THE PASTNow I am in my 70th year of life, which will be celebrated and concluded as a birthday in 2020. As if by itself, there is a reflection of the past. The future becomes more meaningless. My mother has died in March 2019 and I was allowed to accompany her until to her last breath. That also asked many questions about time and life.... The prehistory of life and the world has always occupied and inspired me, the longevity of the trees, some of which are thousands of years old, the documents of past epochs: fascinating, how long before the biblical Creation Report and its time counting there were already cultures and civilization.
