Miniature #1: Shades of Spring



Sheet music for bass clarinet & piano for slightly advanced players

I would like to share with you my first miniature for bass clarinet and piano. Every month I compose a piece for my two favorite instruments and focus on a particular theme, e.g. composition ideas, technical challenges or a specific topic I want to compose about.

“Shades of Spring” was created as part of a creative challenge on my Patreon page. Together with many other artists from different genres, we were looking for a common theme that I ended up composing about and the others created something in their discipline.

It was challenging to find a theme that unites us and at the same time honors our diversity.

Especially in these times, I think it is so important to create space for diversity, without becoming hardened in the opposites. Art and music offer wonderful opportunities to cultivate that.

So I composed a piece that harmonically takes a few unexpected directions and finds pleasure in some rubbing tones.

Quotes From Others

Your music gives me joy of life, it touches me, and inner strings start to vibrate. It is like an invigorating breath of air that makes life more worth living and more beautiful. Listening to your music is like a place of power and makes me marvel at your creativity. Pure fascination.


When I listen to your music... it suddenly smells like curry and coriander, I feel world-weariness, nostalgia and devotion, I feel melancholy and wanderlust, I see pictures of beloved places, my heart carries a complicated kind of feelings.


Your music is my little "gas station" in the stressful everyday life. Sometimes it corresponds with my melancholy, sometimes it elicits a laugh from me. There is a lot of lightness in it for me and at the same time a pleasant depth.

With your music I like to go on journeys in my mind - be it to distant countries, be it to my own inner worlds.

Sometimes it seems to remind me of my hidden parts and to bring out long lost moments.

This sometimes feels painful, but also relieving, and very often my heart just becomes very soft, light, and free.
