The old site with catalogues for each instrument

I have been composing since 1969, concentrating on lyrical tonal music and experimenting in various modes (particularly the Dorian and Octatonic).
Some of my work is aimed at good amateur musicians (both instrumental and vocal) but other pieces are quite virtuoso, especially solo works for flute, saxophone and violin which have been written for specific professional musicians.
I have also attempted to fill specific "gaps" in the market, in particular songs for alto (or baritone) voice and classical guitar: back in 1969, I asked my local music shop if they had such works.
When they said that they didn't, I immediately began to remedy the situation, and continue to do so, as you can see from my catalogue!

Coat of Arms (Wappen)

Coat of Arms (Wappen) I now have a personal coat of arms,

painted by Tudor-Radu Tiron after a design by Elliot Nesterman

and registered with the micronation of Rheinbergen

For those with no Latin, the motto

'Scribo ut canas' means 'I write for you to perform'.

The heraldic cat represents my own cat, Themba.
