Professor

Prof. Karl-Heinz Kämmerling (†)

Prof. Karlheinz Kämmerling, the most successful German piano pedagogue in recent times, was born in Dessau in 1930. He studied in Leipzig with Hugo Steurer and conducted a piano studio at the University of Music and Drama in Hanover for many years. There, he began his widely acclaimed tradition of training pianists, rightfully earning a reputation as a maker of masters, as his students have received over 100 international prizes and 21 graduates of his studio are already employed as professors themselves. In addition, he was a professor at the Mozarteum in Salzburg for many years, and was a guest professor at the Music-Academy in Zagreb, Croatia. For many years, K.-H. Kämmerling taught highly sought-after masterclasses in Europe, Asia and the USA. He has served as a jury member in nearly all the major piano competitions in the world, founded the European Piano Teachers Association (EPTA) in Germany, and held leading positions on many committees supporting soloists and other talents.

In 1999, he received the Order of Merit, First Class, of the Federal Republic of Germany, followed one year later by the Grand Decoration for Services to the Republic of Austria. Karl-Heinz Kämmerling was an honorary member of the Deutscher Musikrat (German Music Council) and was awarded the Arts Prize of the State of Lower Saxony. In June 2012, Karl-Heinz Kämmerling died in Hannover at the age of 82.
