On the death of Udo Zimmermann

The Karl Amadeus Hartmann Society / Hartmann Center mourns the loss of its long-time president Udo Zimmermann. As composer and long-time artistic director of the concert series for new music musica viva, founded by Karl Amadeus Hartmann, he felt deeply connected to Hartmann’s artistic work. Zimmermann also conducted the world premiere of his posthumously published “Sinfonia tragica” in 1989 as part of musica viva and subsequently performed the work at the Salzburg Festival.

Zimmermann took a driving role in the founding of the Karl Amadeus Hartmann Society in 2004 and was elected by the members as its founding president. It is thanks in particular to his tireless commitment that the 2005 commemorative year for Hartmann’s 100th birthday was able to give new impetus to the reception of Hartmann’s works internationally through a large number of concerts and exhibitions.
Thank you Udo Zimmermann!

The Karl Amadeus Hartmann Society / Hartmann Center will always honor the memory of Udo Zimmermann.
