Symphonische Hymnen, Partitur-Kiste

Karl Amadeus Hartmann sends his new composition “Symphonische Hymnen” [Symphonic hymns] to Universal Edition in Vienna

As protection against the effects of war and out of fear of discovery by the National Socialists, he buries his scores in a zinc box in the parish garden of his friend Pastor Dr. Otto Satzinger in Murnau

Travels abroad become almost impossible for Hartmann; he hides in his parents-in-law’s cellar in Kempfenhausen (Lake Starnberg)
