Germany’s top composers publish Festschrift for a sex offendermain
Siegfried Mauser is finally on his way to jail for multiple sexual offences against job applicants and colleagues.
But nobody seems to have told the board of the Akademie der schönen Künste.
They are preparing a Festschrift to be published for the criminal’s 65th birthday next month. Are they out of their mortar board minds?
UPDATE: Among the luminaries who have contributed to this celelbration of a sex-pest are the leading German (male) composers Rihm, Hiller, Reimann, Trojahn, Widmann, Zender and Lachenmann.
The editors are Borchmeyer, Dieter / Popp, Susanne / Steinbeck, Wolfram
The German music establishment is still protecting one of its own.
