Georg Meerwein

Prof. Georg Meerwein, born 1932 in Bickensohl am Kaiserstuhl, first studied Protestant church music at the Badische Musikhochschule in Karlsruhe, but then changed over to orchestral music with oboe as his main subject at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg.

Meerwein performed as a soloist all over the world for several decades and was also a visiting professor at universities in Europe and Latin America, including at the Universidade Federal da Bahia Brazil from 1958 to 1961. Between 1989 and 2009 he gave master-classes in many South American countries. From 1962 to 1996 he was solo oboist and cor anglais player with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra. As well as numerous radio and television appearances, Meerwein has, amongst other things, also made a recording of Mozart’s Piano Quintet K. 452 with Ingrid Haebler for Philips. He died on 25 December 2016.
