His wonderful music added much to the success of the Karl-May movies. He composed the soundtrack to 10 films, among them the famous "Old Shatterhand melody". Additionally he composed the music to a lot of famous movies and series. He was a gentleman and a very nice, modest man.

He will greatly be missed by all Karl-May movie fans.
