This study analyzes the stylistic features of the works of German-Romanian composer and pianist Richard Oschanitzky, focusing on his efforts to find common ground between Western classical music and jazz. It discusses trends in Western art music, jazz styles, and third stream music from 1951-1980, then Oschanitzky's early compositions; his rise as an arranger, orchestrator, and pianist; and his work in film music, ethno-jazz, free jazz, pop music, chamber jazz, symphonic jazz, and academic music. It analyzes academic pieces like the Missa Brevis, Das Lied von der Liebe, and the Sonata for clarinet and piano, as well as jazz works like Blue Brazil, Neurasia, and Cearta, chamber jazz works like Toccata for piano and jazz septet, and symphonic jazz pieces, including the Double Concerto for piano, tenor saxophone, symphonic orchestra and big band.
