In the last year, I had the pleasure of working with Alexander Plötz on some orchestral pieces and a piano ensemble work. I was quite impressed how he takes the necessary time to analyze the work before taking any further steps. Alex works with the goal of notating what the composer's intentions are as opposed to relying only on the original drafts which can often be erroneous and lead to wrong musical interpretations. I also appreciated his very methodical and efficient way of working, which includes numerous skype sessions as well as clear and detailed annotations of the manuscript. In addition Alex is fast, timely and dedicated.
Regarding the recent work he edited and typeset for me, Christmas Chimes, I was extremely pleased with the final result and he definitely helped raise the quality of the work, musically as well as the manuscript presentation. I don't tend to work with many people, but when I do find someone, he stays on my list for any time I need his services. Alexander Plötz falls into that category.
