Death of an Austro-Hungarian composer, 96

Born in Budapest, flourishing in Vienna and holding a professor’s chair in both capitals, the composer Georg Aranyi-Aschner died last Thursday at a great age.

Among more than 500 scores, he published five symphonies.

  • A true personality. He was my teacher at the Musikhochschule Graz for “Partiturspiel und Instrumentation”. Maybe not the greatest teacher, academically spoken, but you could learn from his musical world anyway, as I did. A prolific composer and a gentleman of a past time, and an outstanding pianist. He could wonderfully improvise in all styles.
