signed scores

Over the years I received some violin concerto scores which were signed by the composer and I also had the chance to acquire a few interesting signed copies. This is a lovely side project and I am looking for more signed scores. So if you can offer a copy, please drop me a line!

scores signed for me personally:

Jett Hitt (*1967): Yellowstone, for violin and orchestra


"For Tobias"

"Lieber Herr Bröker, genau genommen ist Shifting ein Stück für Violine solo. Aber ich habe eine verbreitete Technik aufgegriffen: wie die Saiten auf das Corpus der Violine so ist die Violine auf das Orchester gespannt, ein in seinem ganzen Klangreichtum miterregter Resonanzkörper.

Die leidenschaftliche Kraft des grazilen Instruments läßt diesen mächtigen Resonanzraum erbeben oder erregt in ihm Schwingungen, die dann erweiternde oder ganz eigene klangliche Rhapsodien hervorbringen."
