Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s MUSICA VIVA was the most important center for living music after the Second World War.
Ist value to young musicians at all ages can hardly be overestimates and the programs of ist concerts were more valuable to anyone thirsty for living Music than all the so-called philharmonic concerts of the … world.
I deeply dept… his death, not only the loss of the friend but also of his nobel talent.
Adieu, dear Karl Amadeus Hartmann
