From Washington, D.C., United States
Hans Friedrich Nölcke (b. 1982)
I started to compose around the age of ten; after the foundation of performance, on the Piano, was laid at the age of five. I have absolute pitch, making writing "blind" easier than had I only possessed relative pitch. I am a purist, when it comes to instrumentation; but relish the avant-garde, as my interests in curios from contemporary composers consume my time, when not composing myself. Influences include Bach, Bruckner, Shostakovich; as well as contemporaries such as Nobuyoshi Tanaka, and Francois-Xavier Jean.
