Composer

Yannick Wittmann is a passionate composer and arranger. Specialized in vocal music, he has already written for many ensembles, from amateur pop choirs to high-class classical chamber choirs. Among them are the Neuer Kammerchor Berlin, the Vokalsystem Berlin and the Kammerchor der Künste Berlin. His piece “Die Stadt” was premiered in June 2021 in the great hall of the Berliner Philharmonie by the Kammerchor des Collegium Musicum Berlin under the direction of Donka Miteva.

He wrote his piece “Horch” for the Neuer Kammerchor Berlin on the occasion of the competition at the German Choral Festival in Leipzig 2022.

Two of his compositions on the theme “Life in a Big City”, were recorded by the Kammerchor der Künste Berlin under the direction of Maike Bühle and Donka Miteva. One of them can be heard on Spotify.

In June 2019, the Vokalsystem Berlin under the direction of Johannes Wolff presented his two pieces on poems by Clemens Brentano in their entirety for the first time.
