I spent the last few days in the beautiful city of Halle attending this year’s Filmmusiktage. I had the pleasure of hosting a two day seminar on how to write for real orchestra and arrange some of the pieces of the film music concert that concluded this festival. I had a few really nice days, met a lot of old and new friends and colleagues and got the chance to work with Bernd Ruf and the Staatskapelle Halle once again. Cool...

A few months ago, I had the priviledge and pleasure to arrange a big part of the orchestral parts of Matthias Schweighöfers first album LACHEN WEINEN TANZEN. As the music is pretty filmic and “grand scale” there was quite a bit of room for the orchestra to add to the songs. The orchestra was recorded at the world famous Teldex-Studio in Berlin with a quite large line-up of 50 string players and 13 brass players including 6...

It’s an album that contains my arrangements for big orchestra and choir of Protestant Chorales re-imagined by composer Christian Sprenger. We recorded this album in May with Staatskapelle Weimar and Kammerchor der Hochschule für Musik “Franz Liszt” Weimar. It was great fun of giving these beautiful compositions an orchestral...

It will specifically target writing for real orchestra and address things to take care of when coming from a virtual...

I’m currently working on arrangements for this year’s Radio Pilatus Music Night at the world famous KKL in Lucerne, Switzerland. Every year, the 21st Century Orchestra invites a pop music artist to perform their music in a crossover concert.

Last week, I went to the beautiful city of Weimar to conclude a project that I have been working on for almost two years. We spent one week recording the Staatskapelle Weimar and Choir of the Weimar Music University for the album production LUTHERAN SYMPHONIX by Christian Sprenger, who re-composed Bach chorals in a filmic soundscape. I had the pleasure of arranging and orchestrating these works for large symphony orchestra (including...

Quite a while ago in 2015, I had the chance to arrange music for the album WINTER ENDLESS by the Taiwanese Band Sodagreen which has been recorded partially in Berlin with the German Pops Orchestra at the famous Funkhaus. The album recently received 8 nominations for a Golden Melody – the Taiwanese Grammy equivalent. Read more about that here. Below there are a few videos from the sessions and video shoots: Related posts:...

The final result can be seen and heard here (for the impatient: skip to 2:25 for the choir part): Related posts: Berlinale 2016 – Grand Score...

Over the last few weeks, I have been arranging popular film music themes for a performance during this year’s Berlinale Grand Score show. The film themes were re-arranged and interpreted for a 5 piece Jazz-Funk band which was quite a challenge but great fun as well. #berlinale #rehearsal #grand #scores #event #arranger Ein von Robin Hoffmann (@r.hoffmann) gepostetes Foto am 10.
