Music makes one feel so romantic - at least it always gets on one's nerves - which is the same thing nowadays. Oscar Wilde

Einem Komponisten stellt sich immer wieder die Frage, wie sich die vermeintlichen Grenzen zwischen musikalischen Gattungen überschreiten lassen, um neue Klangbilder zu erzeugen.
Für Musik ist es wichtig, dass ihre Eigenständigkeit nicht verloren geht, unabhängig von jedem Bild ihrem eigenen Tempo und Rhythmus folgt, damit beim Zuhörer eigene Bilder und Geschichten entstehen können.
Was wäre die Theaterbühne ohne Musik?


Die Instrumentierung jedes Stückes macht erst die Musik
Erstellung der musikalischen Fassung und Korrepetition
Ein gutes Notenbild wirkt sich direkt auf das hörbare Ergebnis aus


Süddeutsche Zeitung

Max I. Milian's compositions transforms the theatrical play into cinema á la Hollywood.

Congenial, mystic and sinfonic scores that transports the happening to a level, in which music is able to express, what words and gestures can't tell.

Dorothea Friedrich
