Composities

Bij haar composities richt Rieteke Hölscher zich sterk op publiek en uitvoerders, zonder daarbij creatieve concessies te willen doen. Behalve composities voor kleine bezetting schreef ze ook een aantal werken voor grotere bezetting, waaronder werken voor jeugdorkest.

Hölscher werd in september 2012 genomineerd voor de Compositieopdracht Prijs van het Muziek Centrum Nederland, en was in 2015 finalist bij de actie Red de Fagot. Ook werd haar schets voor Robot Toy Piano in 2017 geselecteerd tijdens de Gaudeamus Muziekweek in Utrecht.

"Als componist streef ik in mijn composities naar een unieke klankwereld en een grote toegankelijkheid, met als ideaal een brug te slaan tussen de muziekgeschiedenis, de hedendaagse muziekpraktijk en het publiek."

Composities in onderstaande lijst die met 'Donemus' zijn aangegeven, zijn bij Donemus Publishing te bestellen. Neem voor andere titels contact op met de componist.
