Incidental Music for ‘Bremer Freiheit’ of R.W. Fassbinder, for 7 instruments
Norbert Wissing (1959) studied composition with Lex van Delden. He composes
music for Orchestra and Chamber Ensembles, as well as music for Theatre. He
wrote music for the Fassbinder play “Bremer Freiheit”, on the occasion of
the Fassbinder retrospective of the Ostade-Theater (Amsterdam, 1998).
His orchestral music is performed by the Ricciotti-Ensemble, which played his
“Fassbinders Tod” on tour through the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark
In his music he focusses on colourfull orchestration as is prominently
expressed in his Canto 4 "In Memoriam Lex van Delden" for large orchestra. His
interest in orchestration is shown in his collaboration with Hans van Eck in
the arrangements of Classical works. His music is lyrical and melodical.
