Without degree nor PhD my catalog of works at moment is listing approx.:

– 50 or so research works and books, mainly relating  somehow to history in a broader sense and to musicology;

– 167 or so written music – compositions arrangements, editions with sheetmusic and audios – partly with scientific prefaces – using as main language ENGLISH – because of the fate of my mother during NAZI-times – after the “Volk der Dichter und Denker” (which is: “people of poets and thinkers”) had turned to the “Volk der Richter und Henker” (which is: “people of judges and hangmen”).

Everything  is made free accessible here in CORE repository of Library of Columbia University New York  within Humanties Commons from Michigan State University – because of doi-numbers offered – and in German National Library by normal “legal deposits” – and in other Libraries, which can be looked up partly in “WorldCat”.

They SAY, that you NEED a “PhD” or “academic title” – but MY life showed, if necessary go WITHOUT! They SAY, that you need for development in music proper equipment, but MY life told other.

So in the end: SURROUNDINGS and SUGGESTIONS OF SOCIETY may turn out to be TESTS only, to get HARDER, so to become enabled to reach out to TRUE VALUES   for the  centuries!

And don’t forget: TO LAUGH AT LIFE – especially, if you are cut off from ANY reasonable possibility to become “normal successful” in “building a normal professional career” – which seen from retirement seems not that urgent any longer …

Tell you what – as some sort of “conclusion from MY life”: The old hermits, from which are taken my Christian names, were FAR MORE intelligent than MOST of other storytellers and chitchat-folks!


Was enrolled in quite a number of topics, mainly in “teachers training, German language and literature, Music, secondary education to 10th class”, and for master-studies in history –  but NOT ANY UNIVERSITY DEGREE accomplished

Did in meantime some coursera MOOC-courses around the globe – Tokyo, Singapore, Princton, Zurich, Edingburgh, Wellsesley- and made research contact to NPTEL MOOC, Madras / Chennai, India.

Supported Gnessinka Music School, Moskwa, Hongkong Philharmonic Youth Program, Conservatory of Opava (operated by Order of German Knights OT) , Tchechia – and selected few choirs.

Work Shared in CORE



– Main Christian denominations, both Roman Catholic  and (Russian, Serbian, Greek) Orthodox

– I may add:  In 2019, aged 66, I kindly was informed, that my mother was in NAZI imprisonment including 2 KZs from 1939 to 1945 – and afterwards possibly fell victim to SOVIET troops, which PROBABLY brought her to Rawaruskaja, from where she SOMEHOW made her “way back” to WEST-Germany via POLAND. So please, do withstand the urge, to tell me, to try “liking”  NAZIS nor Stalinist Soviet-Communists!
