Composing and arranging requires quite some effort and time to adjust the sounds, shape the phrasing, and to consider how each given instrument 'behaves' when in the hands of a live player. With Sibelius I had to move from the act of composition itself into the realm and subsequent skills of studio production. When a work begins to come together, it is rather like having a full orchestra at one's fingertips.
Kurt Hartle has been involved with music since the age of 11. He has past experience with many woodwind instruments, a few brass, piano, and the classical guitar. No longer a performer, he has chosen to pursue his musical interests by composing pieces from the intimacy of a piano solo, to duets/trios, larger ensemble and even full orchestral works.
