Profile

Eduard Pütz, born on 13 February 1911 in Illerich near Cochem (Mosel), died on 18 January 2000 in Bad Münstereifel near Bonn, studied school music and mathematics at the Musikhochschule and at the University in Cologne. His
composition teachers were Heinrich Lemacher and Kaspar Roeseling. From 1950 to 1965 he was a secondary school teacher in Rheinbach and from 1965 to 1979 he was lecturer in music theory and composition at the Rheinische Musikschule in Cologne. Eduard Pütz deals with crossing the boundaries between so-called ‘serious’ and light music. His compositions, many of which are written with pedagogical aims for children and young people, therefore incorporate stylistic characteristics of jazz and pop music. Eduard Pütz has composed for all musical genres: his work includes one opera, symphonic music, chamber music, choral music and piano music.
