Visions (1991)
for symphonic wind orchestra (including contrabassoon)
Order No: 8903, sFr. 62.00
Visions: A fight between vision and reality. In this composition the symphonic wind orchestra acts in a rather untypical combination of timbres and rhythm.

Ikaros (1992)
for chamber orchestra
Order No: 8904, sFr. 55.00
Based on the famous saga. Very dramatic music, strongly related to the mythical original. For string orchestra, flute (piccolo), oboe (English horn), clarinet, bassoon and horn.

Spiegelungen (1994)
for piano solo
Order No: 8906, sFr. 26.00
The name refers to the technique used for compiosing the piece. Out of the prologue, five reflections and an epilogue are formed. A very sensual piece allowing great freedom for the interpreter.

Kaleidoskop (1994)
for symphonic wind orchestra
Order No: 8907, sFr. 70.00
From one facet to the whole picture: A dazzling firework of rhythm and harmonic melodies.
