It is with sadness that we announce that composer Georg Katzer has passed away during the night of 6-7 May 2019, aged 84. He was a pioneer of electronic music in the GDR and in 1986 founded the Studio für Elektroakustische Musik at the Berlin Akademie der Künste. He composed many works for C. F. Peters and was an important partner for all GEMA composers.


He received various awards, including the first prize at the competition for electroacoustic music in Bourges (1976), the National Prize of the GDR (1982) and the Federal Cross of Merit 1st Class (2003).
