Karl-Heinz Pinhammer (Baritone)

Born: Febuary 29, 1936 - Germany
Died: May 2, 1985 - Germany

The German baritone, Karl-Heinz Pinhammer, came from a family, where music played a certain role, but nobody except Karl-Heinz made a career in this topic. His father was an engine driver, his older brother became a well known businessman. He left the Gymnasium aged 17, passed the entrance examination to music school (most probably in Wuppertal) - and earned some money as a organ player in church. His singing studies took place from 1957 to 1963 in Berlin with famous singers Walther Ludwig and Herbert Brauer.

In 1966, Karl-Heinz Pinhammer became a fellow Professor (Dozent) at Hannover Music Academy (Musikhochschule) and later on Professor. From 1978, he taught at Lübeck Music Academy (Musikhochschule).

There are recordings beginning in the year 1968, in the first line Bach Cantatas, but also Lieder by Schubert, Wolf, and R. Strauss. In addition to the classical music he was also facing the modern composition.His last last recital dates form March 5, 1985 performing Schubertís Winterreise. Two months later, a traffic accident stopped his career abruptly, he died on May 2, 1985.
