New Music for Wind Band
Yet another substantial work by our most prolific composer Roland Wiltgen. This time it’s about his homeland, his childhood impressions and nostalgia. His large symphonic fresque for wind band from 1999/2005 is due to be performed by the Harmonie Municipale d’Esch/Alzette conducted by Jean Thill during the Esch2022 festival.
Music for Saxophone
Albena Petrovic-Vratchanska composed several works for saxophone, which are played on this newly released recording by Joan Martí-Frasquier, Romain Nosbaum, Cynthia Knoch and the Kevyart Ensemble.

Alexander Müllenbach im Porträt
On Luxembourg – Let’s make it happen, composer Alexander Müllenbach gives an interview informing about his musical journey and the composers in Luxembourg. Several of his works are published by LMP, of which he is a founding member and member of the board.
Music by René Mertzig (1911 – 1986)
After many ups and downs, LMP is proud to announce the publication of René Mertzig’s works, one of the most important composers for Luxembourg’s musical heritage.
In our shop you will find the serenade Cité éblouissante for septet and quintet of clarinets and Trois mélodies pour chant et piano,as well as reduced version of his works by Claude Kraus and Walter Civitareale.Publications of other works will follow soon.
Henri Pensis – a facet to discover…
LMP is currently preparing the edition of works by Henri Pensis (1900-1958). Pensis is mainly acknowledged for his abundant merits regarding symphonic music in Luxembourg. He founded and conducted the RTL Symphony Orchestra from 1933 to 1958 – with the exception of the period from 1940 to 1946, during which he lived in exile in the US. But Henri Pensis was likewise a skilled violinist (he was a Konzertmeister of the WDR Funkhaus Orchester), and a learned composer (having studied with Philipp Jarnach at the Musikhochschule Köln). As there is hardly any sheet music of Pensis’ compositions available, LMP, committed to conserve the treasures of Luxembourg’s musical history, decided to feature some works by this remarkable musician. May this undertaking bring some new insight into this important figure of Luxembourg’s cultural life!
Chance brought it about that some shelf meters of well-ordered files with many autographs and copies of Pensis’ compositions were found in the archives of the Conservatoire in Luxembourg City. As a first batch, LMP intends to publish a collection of songs. Reflecting the cosmopolitan character of this small country, the lyrics will be in French, German, English and, of course, Luxembourgish. These songs bear testimony to Pensis’ sensibility and refined chromatic writing.
As a next step, LMP plans to publish some chamber music works (e.g. Lullaby and the Fantasy on 2 Christmas Carols), as well as some pieces for symphonic orchestra, respectively for wind band. Our News section will be updated for any new releases. – Henri Foehr
