(1909 - 2007)

Harald Genzmer studied with Hindemith, among others, before beginning his career as a chorus repetiteur in Breslau. After the war he taught at the Freiburg and then the Munich Musikhochschule. A prolific composer, he largely continued the tradition of Hindemith, with compositions that include works for amateurs.

Orchestral Music

Genzmer wrote a quantity of concertos for a variety of instruments, including an early concerto for the trautonium, a newly devised electronic instrument for which Hindemith also provided a concerto. Other works include five symphonies.

Chamber Music

Genzmer’s chamber music, like Hindemith’s, caters for a variety of instrumentalists, with quartets, trios, and sonatas for a wide array of instruments including violin and piano.
