Ulrich Herkenhoff

W hile film music must normally go through a highly complex editing process and a number of studio apparatuses, resulting in the fact that in the end, the participating musicians only prepare the initial material for the soundtrack, the interpretors here are, so to speak, recapturing their music for themselves: the Kurpfälzische Kammerorchester plays famous pieces from recent films in arrangements written by Matthias Keller especially for it. Special tonal colors are provided in one part of the program by the pan flute, played by Ulrich Herkenhoff. These compositions, originally written for large symphony orchestra, gain a musical life of their own through the reduction for chamber orchestra, in which each musician makes a major contribution to the whole, thus giving the original soundtrack the directness and intimacy that only a chamber ensemble can.
