WOLFGANG RIHM  

(b 1952 )

Wolfgang Rihm was born in Karlsruhe on 13 March 1952. He began composing at the age of eleven, studying with Eugen Werner Velte at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Karlsruhe from 1968–72, then with Karlheinz Stockhausen in Cologne from 1972–73, and with Klaus Huber at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg from 1973–76. He received an honorary doctorate from the Freie Universität Berlin in 1998. Among his numerous honours are the Preis der Stadt Stuttgart in 1974, Berlin Kunstpreis Stipendium in 1978, a residency at Villa Massimo in Rome from the Deutsche Künstlerakademie for 1979–80 and the Beethoven-Preis der Stadt Bonn in 1981. He was elected to the Akademien der Künste in Berlin, Mannheim and Munich in 1991 and received the Prix de Composition Musical de la Fondation Prince Pierre de Monaco in 1997. He was made an Officier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government in 2001 and received the Ernst von Siemens Musikpreis in 2003. He taught at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Karlsruhe from 1973–78 and has been Professor of Composition there since 1985, dividing his time between Karlsruhe and Berlin.
