His subsequently close association with Carl Orff influenced the years thereafter. Hiller met Orff in 1968 and worked with him closely as his student until Orffs death. Meeting Michael Ende in 1978 also represented the beginning of a fruitful and artistic partnership and intimate friendship that lasted until Ende's death in 1995, generating a large number of successful works like "Die zerstreute Brillenschlange" (The scattered spectacled cobra), "Vier musikalische Fabeln" (Four musical fables), "Der Goggolori", "Die Jagd nach dem Schlarg" (The hunt for the Schlarg), "Das Traumfresserchen" (The dream glutton), and "Der Rattenfänger" (The rat catcher). Hiller has been the Music Director of the Bavarian Radio since 1971. In 1989 he became a member of the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts, was assigned a lectureship in 1991 at the Munich Academy of Music, and in 1993 was appointed teacher for composition at the Richard Strauss Conservatory in Munich.
