Bernhard Krol (1920–2013) — Würzburger Pastetchen (Rondino giocoso für das Orgelpositiv) (2007)
German composer Bernhard Krol (1920–2013) was born in Berlin and was educated there and in Vienna. Upon his return to Berlin, he had a long career as a professional orchestral horn player, with the Berlin State Opera (1945–1961), the Berlin Philharmonic (1961–62), and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (1962–79). He wrote more than 200 compositions in a wide variety of genres and instrumentations. His music style was largely tonal, often combining elements of the late German romantic chromaticism of Reger with the clear, transparent textures of Hindemith.
