Welcome to my newly designed website!
Have fun looking around, I look forward to your feedback!
„Henning Sieverts: Double Quartet“ is now available!
An international octet with eight fine musicians from USA, France, Luxembourg and Germany.
It works as double quartet and also sometimes as two „twin pairs“: two saxophones (Loren Stillman: as, ss and Sylvain Rifflet: ts, clar), two harmonie-instruments (Florian Weber: p and Pascal Schumacher: vibes, marimba), two bass-instruments (Francois Thuillier: tuba and Henning Sieverts: b, cello) and two drums (Jochen Rückert and John Hollenbeck).
„Henning Sieverts Double Quartet“ came to life at the „Tonspuren“-Festival 2014, led by myself as „composer in residence“.
While researching over 600 years of this former Benedictine Abbey`s history, I unearthed a Mass composed in 1614 by monks specifically for the Abbey´s festival of St.Benedict.
I chose two elements from this festive Mass: a Cantus Firmus and a hexachord – they permeate my Irsee music as „leitmotif“ in many creative forms.
On the Double-CD „Hexacor“ from 2015, two „Tonspuren“-Concerts are documented, the third Programm with completly different music appears now on this CD „Henning Sieverts Double Quartet!

„Henning Sieverts: Vibes & Strings“ is now available!
An exciting Live CD with my new quartet from the famous Munich jazz club „Unterfahrt“: with New York vibraphonist Tim Collins, Australian guitarist Peter O´Mara and Matthias Gmelin on drums. This cd was released as part of a new series in collaboration with „Enja Records“ and it´s a big honour to be the opening group for the „Edition Unterfahrt“!</strong>
„Henning Sieverts: Vibes & Strings“ springs to life through the appealing combination of crystaline vibraphone and warm strings. The compositions are mostly groovy with a striking beauty arising from this unique instrumentation.
On the „Sounds“ page you can listen to some samples of „Henning Sieverts: Vibes & Strings“.

A fantastic documentary about the „Tonspuren“-Festival</strong> was recently released!
The DVD „Tonspuren – der Film“ shows the three festivals of 2013, 2014 and 2015 in all their colourful variety, interesting for everyone who visited the „Tonspuren“ festival and also for anyone who will then notice what they´ve missed...
