Suite für Violoncello und Klavier

Georg Trexler
Out of Stock


Georg Trexler (1903–1979) first studied economics and law in Leipzig before switching to church music. In 1930 he became Director of Music at the Catholic Trinity Church in Leipzig. He was drafted for military service in 1940. After being held as a prisoner of war by the American army, he returned to Leipzig to teach at the University of Music, becoming a professor in 1948. He was awarded the Order of St Sylvester by pope Paul VI in 1967 for services to Catholic church music, which – like all religious activities – faced official suppression in East Germany. His Suite for Cello and Piano was written in 1957 and can be performed as a cycle or as individual pieces.

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.
