Moritz Eggert

Moritz Eggert, born in 1965 in Heidelberg, studied music at the Dr. Hoch's Conservatory in Frankfurt am Main. He works as a composer. Besides his focus on music theatre and opera writing he likes to cultivate nuances of chamber or experimental music, for example in his song cycle Neue Dichter Lieben or his piano cycle Hämmerklavier. Among his latest projects were among others a score of Google’s terms of use for vocals and orchestra, a “cook’s opera” and a symphony for car horns. He writes the Bad Blog of Musick on contemporary music in Germany for the Neue Musikzeitung. For Schauspielhaus Bochum he composed a Kneipen-Kantate für Bettler, Bergleute und Betrunkene for Ein Fest für Mackie, the co-production between the Schauspielhaus Bochum and the Bochumer Symphoniker on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the two institutions in the 2019/20 season.
