Compositions

Burkhardt Söll Söll has written a great diversity of works: children's songs, chamber music, operas and music for film and theater. For a long time his works were inspired by paintings; he also composed according to a self-invented system which has the natural growth of plants as a basis.Examples of "plant art" are Gouden regen (1989) for bass clarinet, Judaspenning (1992) for alto saxophone and vibraphone, and Amorphophallus for saxophone quartet (1993). Söll has a special favour for dark sounds. Especially bass clarinet, cello, viola and trombone appeal to him. In his piece for two pianos, Hell und Dunkel sind alle Farben zugleich (1998), dark sounds play an important role. His compositions are a.o. published by Tonos Musikverlag in Darmstadt, Germany.
