About

This CD documents the late works of Georg Katzer, one of the greats among the composers of the former GDR who died in 2019.

The disc includes both chamber and orchestral music, created from 2016, interpreted by the musicians for whom it was written. These include three cello pieces postscriptum zu B. that refer to Beethoven (Jörg Ulrich Krah, cello and Bernhard Parz, piano), a song cycle for the Elisabeth Trio, a percussion quartet (Bremer Schlagzeugensemble) and the ensemble work La scuola dell’ascolto 5, whose interpreters quickly renamed themselves georg katzer ensemble Berlin after the world premiere.

A special highlight is the world-premiere recording of the orchestral work discorso with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin (RSB) under Vladimir Jurowski. The conductor, who has been closely associated with Georg Katzer for a long time, also contributed a greeting to the CD, in which he noted: “What amazed me above all about his music - this was not the typical music of an 83-year-old! In spirit, he remained a young man.”
