Many thanks to my friend António Carrilho from Lisboa for the wonderful premieres of "Ukuvalelisa, 10 Miniatures for Recorder Solo" in Hervey Bay on February 15 and of Cádiz (for recorder and piano) on February 19 in the Sydney. The scores to both pieces are just published, you can order them on this site since today, as well as the score for UXOLO for recorder orchestra. Now I am looking forward to the next premiere: On April 4 the Philadelphia Sinfonia under the baton of Gary White will play the premiere of my CELEBRATION for string orchestra. I hope to see you there!

Dear friends, due to the current spread of the Corona virus we decided to cancel the Hamburg Recorder Day on March 29 in Hamburg. I still hope that we will take the necessary measures that could bring down or at least slow down the pandemic so we can hold the workshops on May 9 - 10 in Fulda an on June 13 in Leipzig. Let's wait and see. In the meantime: Take care for yourself and your loved ones, take this thing seriously! Yours Sören

Sören Sieg Music Video Competition 2020: Since I saw YELLOW SUBMARINE from The Beatles as a child, I've been fascinated by music videos. Be it that you can watch the musicians exactly while playing; be it that the video creates its own visual world that reflects the emotions of the music. Four years ago I cut my first music videos about Wakati njema, and now I'm running my first music video competition!

The most creative video for a movement of one of my trios, quartets or quintets will be awarded. The submission deadline is September 1st, 2020.
The first prize is 2000 euros and a new composition for the winning ensemble, the second prize is 1250 euros, the third prize is 750 euros. The jury will include the recorder player Ebba-Maria Künning-Zeijl, the filmmaker Claire Walka, and me. For more information please click on the logo "Sören Sieg Music Video Competition" above.
I look forward to your contributions!

Sören Sieg Musikvideowettbewerb 2020: Seit ich als Kind YELLOW SUBMARINE von den Beatles sah, bin ich fasziniert von Musikvideos. Sei es, dass man den Musikern ganz genau beim Spielen zusehen kann; sei es, dass das Video ganz eigene Bildwelten für die Musik schafft. Vor vier Jahren habe ich meine ersten eigenen Musikvideos zu Wakati njema geschnitten; und nun veranstalte ich meinen ersten eigenen Musikvideowettbewerb!
