News (October 2021):

Good news: The long-awaited new edition of Tango Meets Jazz (print edition) is out! ---> Schott Music ED 20878D. (Unfortunately, this was a bit late due to Corona.) Instead of a CD, all audio files can be downloaded free of charge. Soon it will be available worldwide. Just try it in your country. If it doesn't work yet:
(Of course you can still get downloads of the individual pieces, e.g. the "Caballos Españoles").



News (July 2021):

Here is a video of my master class at the AIMA showing some excerpts relating to my piece "Caballos Españoles", here performed by Yilei YAO.
The master class took place on July 6th, 2021, organized by the Australian International Musicians Association, thanks to President Isabella Liu and Allan Yang for all their efforts. "Caballos Españoles" is based on "Por una Cabeza" by Carlos Gardel and the sheet music is published in "Tango Meets Jazz", Schott Music.

News (June 2021):

News for the many who have asked: the new edition of "Tango Meets Jazz" is coming! Unfortunately a few weeks later than planned due to Corona, but it will happen (summer 2021). Thanks to the Schott music team with Nico Schellhammer, who keeps things going despite the very difficult situation! By the way: I think you can already pre-order it from some retailers.

"12 Etudes for piano" by Uwe Korn. Schott Music ED 23469.

Sheet music: https://de.schott-music.com/shop/12-etuden-noq54480.html


The 12 Etudes for piano are conceived as concert etudes. Stylistically, they are oriented towards classical modernism, but influences from jazz, Latin (and even rock) are also present.
In Etude No. 7, for example, one can definitely recognise a post-Romantic influence, but on closer listening salsa rhythms are also perceptible throughout. In Etudes No. 2 and 3, on the other hand, classical modernism can be heard, while in others jazz rock (No. 10), ragtime (No. 6) and other influences are discernible.
Finally, as an 'encore', there is Etude No. 12 'The Hornet' so that this insect, apart from the omnipresent bumblebee, is given due attention for once.


Etude No.1 from "12 Etudes for piano":

I am very happy about this wonderful recording of Etude No.1, played by the amazing pianist Ernest So. Just listen, look and enjoy!

Ernest So is active as a pianist in concerts, master classes and festivals in numerous countries around the world.


Etude No.5 from "12 Etudes for piano":

The wonderful pianist Erik Cortes Alcantara has made a great video of Etude No.  5, which I would like to show here.
Erik Cortes is a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, NY. He is currently a Faculty member at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), as well as Concert Artist in the Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes y Literatura (INBAL). He is also a Yamaha Artist.

News (November 2020):

Hello piano players everywhere!
We have a lot of inquiries about the "Caballos Españoles", maybe because of the ABRSM syllabus in which it appears in grade 8.  Many write to me that they cannot get the sheet music. The book "Tango Meets Jazz", which contains this piece, seems to be totally sold out all over the world.  But you can download the Caballos here (sheet music):





News (August 2020):
Meets Jazz, Caballos Espanoles, 12 Etudes for piano ... :

crazy digital times: last week I could talk to 200 Chinese piano teachers about my music without even going there!
It was a great pleasure being invited to a master class

by international concert pianist Ernest So in Honkong with participants from all over mainland China.
All the best for Ernest and all piano players there!



News (July 2020):

The "Caballos Españoles" (spanish horses) came to the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) in 2021/22, piano

grade 8. Recorded by me in 2010 at Bauer Studios.
Good luck with the exams for all piano players!
