Spielmusik für Fagott und Klavier

Siegfried Stolte
Out of Stock


Siegfried Stolte (1925–1991) studied bassoon and composition at the University of Music in Leipzig, working as a music teacher after graduation. From 1954 to 1958 he was head of the local music school in Altenburg, Thuringia. In 1960–1961, he held a position as composition lecturer at the Bagdad Conservatoire and conducted the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra. Following his return to East Germany, he taught at the University of Music in Leipzig before being appointed head of the local music school in the town of Waren in Mecklenburg. His compositions include works for orchestra and concert band, as well as choral and chamber music. His Spielmusik for Bassoon and Piano was written in 1953.

Throughout its long and eventful history, Edition Peters has consistently sought to support contemporary music, making it accessible in high-quality scores. The years in which Germany, and the publishing house itself, were divided between East and West form an important chapter in the company's story. The output of composers from the East German firm – then known as VEB Edition Peters, Leipzig – forms a unique and valuable part of the company's identity and, more widely, of European cultural history. Their works are compositionally and aesthetically diverse, while sharing a communicative creative drive. The artistic independence of the music created in East Germany between 1949 and 1990 makes this repertoire well worth rediscovering.
