As one of Germany's most renowned composers, Enjott Schneider has created a truly comprehensive oeuvre covering all musical genres. He shapes his musical material with a skillful balance between seriousness and comprehensibility, characterised by a concise semantic content and with cross references to music history. With his expressive music Schneider is able to address existential topics and to link sound and meaning, music and content. He wrote several operas, seven symphonies as well as concertos and various works for diverse soloist and orchestra combinations. His compositions for children are interesting expansions for the orchestra repertoire.
