Max Georg Baumann (Composer)

Born: November 20, 1917 - Kronach, Upper Franconia, Germany
Died: July 17, 1999 - Berlin, Germany

The German composer, Max Georg Baumann, studied at the Berlin Musikhochschule and later took a position there as lecturer, going on to become the head of the school of music in 1963.

Max Georg Baumann's work had been influenced by and continued in the vein of Max Reger and Paul Hindemith. He was one of the few composers to write a concerto for organ and orchestra. His cantata Libertas cruciata (1963) was the first composition written specifically to be played on stereo FM radio. His compositions are mainly sacred works that are dramatic and austere in character. He wrote four Masses, a piano concerto, many pieces for the organ, music specifically for amateurs, etc.
