Welcome to Ludger Vollmer
"Ludger Vollmer is considered the most performed contemporary opera composer in the German-speaking world." (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
"Ludger Vollmer's music pulls, pulls, captivates. From the very beginning you are drawn into it... There is an unconditional passion in everything the composer Ludger Vollmer does" (WDR 3)
In his operas, Vollmer uses west-eastern scales and a dramatically accelerated dramaturgy driven by the pace of today's aesthetics.
"The City of Weimar thanks Ludger Vollmer, the passionate composer and musician, who works in his works for the reduction of prejudices against minorities and for cultural diversity. He succeeds in his compositions again and again to build bridges between cultures. He sets standards as an artist and as a human being with a signal effect for Germany."
