Musical instruments



Dr. Richard Bräucker

Private Interests


I am interested in art history of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, mainly in painting, architecture and music.

In 1979 I founded together with some friends the Ensemble für Alte Musik der Ev. Kirchengemeinde Schwerte. This ensemble plays music between the 12th and early 17th century on copies of historical instruments 

Sacred music

I am conducting the brass ensemble of the CVJM Westhofen.

Music and computer

Some sources of old music (especially facsimiles of handwritings) are difficult to read or play. I re-edit such manuscripts for the use of our ensembles by means of the programme CAPELLAtm. "side products" of this work are MIDI-Files.

Computer programming

Using VISUAL BASICtm and formally QBASICtm  I develop computer-programmes for the topics graphics, MIDI, image analysis, statistics... but this is partly scientific business.
