The work of Lorenz Dangel is characterised by a large variety of styles and forms. After being initially classically trained, his interests soon grew wider and he began writing film music and stage music. Having the freedom to move between these musical genres not only inspires him as a composer, but also defines him. Dangel has written music for numerous feature films, amongst them the score for Hell directed by Tim Fehlbaum, for which for which he was nominated with the “German Film Prize” in 2012.
For the period 2004 to 2013 he was composer-in-residence at the “Origen Festival Cultural”. Highlights include David, and opera in three acts, Inferno, a sound installation on a moving train, and Noah, an orchestral ballet music.
In 2007 Ströme, a large-scale orchestra piece commissioned by the SWR, was premiered by RSO Stuttgart.
In December 2017 his ballet music Satori with Sergei Polunin as choreographer and dancer was premiered by the English National Opera at the Coliseum in London. Der Schneesturm (The Blizzard) will be his first comissioned work for the Bayerisches Staatsballett.
