for orchestra

Since the jazz orchestra (aka big band) compositions have there own category, this list presents my work for symphonic orchestra (3), sinfonietta (1), string orchestra with soloist (3) and two compositions for enlargened jazz orchestra, meaning a big band plus additional woodwinds like oboe, bassoon, french horn etc.

Most of these pieces consist of several movements.
You can listen to an excerpt of Time freeze in the player on the left and at the bottom of this page I will add some more samples of other pieces.
