Recommendations and critics

Unsuk Chin       “one of the most celebtrated composers of our time” [1]

“Lukas Hövelmann-Köpers compositions reflect a strong will and the great courage to create new musical worlds. Each single tone has great intensity and is being featured as its own universe. At the same time, all these single tones grow into a dense texture of enormous energy.”


Andrea Lorenzo Scartazzini       “composer whose operas have been performed at leading European 

 opera houses” [2]

“Lukas Hövelmann-Köper is a distinguished composer who creates impressive musical landscapes for large scale orchestra as well as for chamber instrumentation. In his scores he shows a deep musical understanding of different contemporary composition techniques and a refined sense of building long and emotionally striking climaxes.”
