Hans Fleischer (composer)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hans Fleischer (born November 10, 1896 in Wiesbaden , † February 20, 1981 in Bayreuth ) was a German composer.


Fleischer graduated from the humanistic grammar school in Wiesbaden and was then drafted into military service. After the end of the First World War in 1918 he studied composition with Professor Carl Kittel in Bayreuth until 1921 , which he had already started in 1913, but had to interrupt because of the war. Fleischer from then on worked as a composer and pianist in Wiesbaden, but soon took further lessons, this time with Johanna Senfter in Oppenheim . In 1941 he became head of the music theory training classes at the Landesmusikschule Luxemburg, and shortly thereafter also deputy director of the school. He left this post in 1945 and worked freelance in Bayreuth again. The remaining years of his life he stayed with his wife Else, née Matthieu, in his house, where he died in 1981.

to honor

In 1956, Fleischer was awarded the Jean Paul Silver Medal, and in 1976 he was awarded the City of Bayreuth Culture Prize. After his death, his manuscripts were kept in Bayreuth's archives.
