Kurt  Hessenberg

Born: August 17th, 1908
Died: June 17th, 1994
Country of origin: Germany
Kurt Hessenberg was born in Frankfurt on the Main in 1908 and studied composition and piano at the Leipzig Regional Conservatoire. In 1933 he became a teacher of theory at the Hoch Conservatoire in Frankfurt on the Main and was later appointed professor of composition at the Musikhochschule. He died on 17 June  1994.
His compositions comprise not only several concertos and chamber music works but primarily sacred choral music, oratorios and compositions for organ.

Hessenberg is one of the most important representatives of Protestant church music in the 20th century.
