Faber Music signs German composer, Torsten RaschFaber Music Ltd has announced the signing of an exclusive publishing agreement with the young German composer Torsten Rasch (b. 1965).
Following many years writing film scores in Japan, Rasch came to prominence in his native Germany with with the premiere and subsequent Deutsche Gramophon release of his orchestral song cycle Mein Herz brennt, which takes its text and musical inspiration from existing songs by the hugely popular German industrial metal band Rammstein, who first hit the international rock scene in the mid-1990s and who now have sold over 7 million albums worldwide.
Despite this, accoring to Fabers, "Rasch’s work, traces, quite surprisingly, the lineage of Mahler, Berg and Zemlinsky with hardly any reference to popular musical language at all. "
