Many thanks to the Duo Sempre from Oldenburg - Arsen Asanov und Dariya Panasevych - for the beautiful Premiere of LA JOIE in Hamburg on November 24. They have already published a stunning music video of the piece on Youtube. On December 18 Seldom Sene will play the first two movements of my new Suite AFRICAN CHRISTMAS in Utrecht (whole Premiere in one year). And on February 19 next year António Carrilho from Lisboa will perform "Ukuvalelisa, 10 Miniatures for Recorder Solo" for the first time - in Sydney, Australia! My first premiere Down Under. And we will play Cádiz together in a specially arranged version for recorder and piano. Finally: 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! By the way: Since September the new CD NOT A SINGLE ROAD from Seldom Sene is available - including a beautiful recording of my African Suite No. 24 MATHONGO AMNANDI (Sweet Dreams).

I wish to thank all the participants of my workshops last year in Fulda, Schaffhausen, Hamburg, and Seattle (first time USA!). My next workshop about my African Recorder Music will take place in Sydney on February 22! But you don't have to travel that far: I will also give workshops on March 29 in Hamburg, on May 9 - 10 in Fulda an on June 13 in Leipzig. I hope to see you there!

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!
