Rainer Stegmann

Guitarist and composer

Two upcoming solo recitals: 

On June 1, 2024, 12.05 pm, I play solo works by J.S. Bach and myself at the Niedermünsterkirche in Regensburg. The title of the recital is ´In search of meaning and peace`.

On August 2, 2024, 19.00 pm, I play the same works under the same title at the Dreieinigkeitskirche in Regensburg.

Après la Guerre has been recorded on CD on May 8, 2024, by the Bohuslav Martinú Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Gevorg Sargsyan in Zlin, Czech Republic. The recording took place at the Filharmonia, a big concert hall with phenomenal acoustics. Now I´m looking forward to the publication of the CD.

After the premiere of APRÈS LA GUERRE at Carnegie Hall, New York

After my composition Après la guerre for orchestra has won a Call for Scores competition of the Progressive Musicians in New York, it was premiered on April 4, 2024, at the Laureate Gala at Carnegie Hall, New York. The performers were the New York Chamber Players under the baton of Maestro Giacomo Franci. It was very exciting to hear my work live at such a famous location!

In order to get a sound impression of the work, I refer to a recording with virtual instruments that has been published on youTube in combination with an image collage, s.  Video

There is also an interview about the creation of the work, s.  Video

Our music festival UNTERNEHMEN GEGENWART 2023 was very successful. We had a first-class program with great musicians, and all concerts were more well attended than ever before. The cooperation with the city of Regensburg and since this year also with the Sudetendeutschen Musikinstitut has proven itself.
