HERKENHOFF IN CONCERT
Partner - Repertoire - Program

PANFLUTE AND ORCHESTRA

Being the soloist in concerts with symphony or chamber orchestra Herkenhoff knows how to fascinate also people that normally don't go to "classical" concerts. His repertoire is manifold and extensive. More often he got best reviews from experts for his interpretation of baroque music.
His performances with music that is inspired by east-European roots (Bartók, Hadjiev, Herkenhoff) are electrifying and have public appeal. Due to his collaboration with internationally acclaimed soundtrack composers such as Howard Shore (Lord of the Rings) and Ennio Morricone he has also built up a good reputation in this area.

Ulrich Herkenhoff, regularly being guest of prestigious orchestras, always has sold-out concert halls and creates long lasting concert experiences, during which also the dialog with the audience does not go short.

"DUO PANOFORTE"
Panflute and Piano
Ulrich Herkenhoff and Felix Romankiewicz

A few months ago, during a concert in Ludwigsburg, I got to know the really marvelous pianist Felix Romankiewicz from Stuttgart. Already during the first rehearsal it was immediately clear to us that we harmonize musically very well, and thus we decided to establish a duo. Now we are at the beginning of an exciting collaboration and in future we want to direct our attention especially to the topic “original compositions for panflute”.
This duo is certainly always a guarantee for a gorgeous concert experience! Panflute, an instrument that is seldom heard at serious classical concerts, in combination with piano! The repertoire of the duo Herkenhoff-Romankiewicz spans from classical pieces of music over cinema soundtracks to contemporary original compositions for panflute and piano. Concert enjoyment and entertainment at its best!

Here a little trailer through the programm of original-kompositions for panflute and piano:

"VON MOZART BIS MORRICONE"
Panflute and Organ / Panflute and Piano
Ulrich Herkenhoff and Matthias Keller

Since 1987 the musician Matthias Keller, living in Munich, is the permanent concert partner and companion of Ulrich Herkenhoff. In church concerts, with the charming combination of panflute and organ, as well as in concert halls both musicians are using a multitude of stylistic elements and repertoire, including original compositions for panflute from contemporary composers. In addition, since many years Matthias Keller is the artistic consultant and project manager of Ulrich Herkenhoff.

Based on this long-term and productive friendship several CDs were produced. Click on the CDs to get more information about the repertoire and to listen to examples:

PANFLUTE AND GUITAR
Ulrich Herkenhoff and Konrad Huber / Wolfgang Jungwirth

The combination of panflute and guitar leads to a charming, full evening program in the style of chamber music. Since his studies Ulrich Herkenhoff played in several concerts together with the guitarist Konrad Huber. The program ranges from baroque to contemporary music, including original compositions for this instrumentation. During his lectureship at the Anton Bruckner University in Linz, Austria, Ulrich Herkenhoff met the guitarist Prof. Wolfgang Jungwirth who more often acted as répétiteur for Herkenhoff's students. And recently Prof. Wolfgang Jungwirth accompanied Ulrich Herkenhoff during several concerts.

… the sensitivity and virtuosity of presenting this pithy music was amazing... at the end it was clear to have heard a real master of the panflute, Ulrich Herkenhoff. Citation: Süddeutsche Zeitung

Using the instrumentation panflute and guitar (Herkenhoff/Huber) one CD was produced so far. Click on the CDs to get more information about the repertoire and to listen to examples:

BACK TO THE ROOTS, PANFLUTE / ORGAN
Ulrich Herkenhoff and Alexandre Cellier
Improvisation based on Romanian Folkmusic

This is exactly the music through which Ulrich Herkenhoff encountered the panflute in 1981 and that he started to love. In the beginning of the 70s Marcel Cellier had the brilliant idea to combine the panflute with its “classical successor”, the church organ. The Rumanian improvisations with the young Gheorghe Zamfir became a worldwide success and were published on many records and later CDs. At the age of 14 Ulrich Herkenhoff got hold of one of these records..., this moment was the “initial spark” and influenced his entire life.

"Back to the roots", the oldest memory of the beginning, and now totally new as complete concert program, together with Alexandre Cellier, the youngest son of Marcel Cellier, playing organ.

Following is an example of a totally spontaneous and unplanned recording session at the Lake Geneva:
