Death of Viennese baroque leader and critic

In 1956 Gerhard Kramer founded one of the city’s first early-music groups, the Wiener Barockensemble. He went on to establish the Convivium Musicum Vindobonense, all the while conducting the boys choir at the Piaristenkirche and writing concert reviews for Die Presse and the Wiener Zeitung.

Gerhard died of cancer on Christmas Eve, aged 81.
