Martin Lichtfuss - Komponist und Dirigent Martin Lichtfuss - compositeur et chef d'orchestre

In all my compositions, I deliberately try to transform the opposing forces of contemporary music into a personal idiom. This idiom is often characterized by pulsating rhythms repeatedly crossed by ametric sonic situations. The harmony is mostly free-tonal, and it yet glides into atonality time and again. And if most intimate musical passages consistently feature in my orchestral pieces, my chamber music itself is often suffused with symphonic gesture.
