He combined his artistic training as a musician (violin, viola) and diploma teacher for improvisation in a striking way: as one of the most prolific and best-known contemporary composers he connects currently preferably high culture and youth culture in the specialty Youth Opera, by Lola he runs about Tom Tykwer or set against the wall by Fatih Akin and puts it on the Opera stage. For Ludger Vollmer, the music is a non-verbal language, intense and emotionally communicating with the audience. The compositional work fields of Ludger Vollmers are thematically very varied. So he created works of all genres, from the Grand Opera to solo Chamber music, by Dance and incidental music, choral and Symphonic Band as well as electroacoustic work for film and CD-ROM.

In his role as Ambassador of the network, it can help to build healthy singing offers for sick people. Ludger Vollmer: Singing for me is the strongest and at the same time sublimierteste expression of emotion, from communication in emotionality. If I can sing with my family and friends, I am very happy. At the same time, I think that there is hardly a more authentic and more accurate expression for human emotion than the singing. Vocals, which contain not only text, but at the same time, the interpretation of the text, also transported strong body language signals by other media not at all or only weakly can flow. The emotional message to the environment thus raised himself.
-I’m sure that one of the reasons is, who dropped the choice of my means of communication as an artist on the Opera.” Ludger Vollmer has experienced the common singing can be as healing in crises and situations: one of the most important images of my youth had to me at my grandmother’s deathbed engraved: grandfather, himself sick, took a guitar that I had no idea until then that he konnte-to play guitar and sang with her, on her bed, the songs of their adolescence, every and Wanderlieder. This was a peace, a happiness, a love and above all a dignity that I’ll never forget. Have we across can guide my father a year ago in our family with this way, and I think that he was happy on his last journey, that we could be with him.
