ULRICH LEYENDECKER (b 1946 )
The German composer Ulrich Leyendecker was born in Wuppertal in 1946, studying in
Cologne and later teaching at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg, followed in 1994
by a similar appointment as Professor of Composition at the Heidelberg-Mannheim
Musikhochschule. In his style of writing he represents a post-modernist
generation, writing works under traditional formal titles, while avoiding rigid
adherence to these or a doctrinaire approach to composition.
