Hans Werner Henze

German composer, 1926-2012

"Henze’s large oeuvre of works is extremely varied in style, having been influenced by serialism, atonality, Stravinsky, Italian music, Arabic music and jazz, as well as traditional schools of German composition. Although he did study atonalism early in his career, after his move to Italy in 1953, Henze’s music became considerably more Neapolitan in style. His opera ""König Hirsch"" (""The Stag King"") contains lush, rich textures. An avowed Marxist and member of the Communist Party of Italy, Henze produced compositions honoring Ho Chi Minh and Che Guevara. He also spent a year teaching in Cuba, though he later became disillusioned with Castro."

It is so silly, I never come to Paris, while I send months in London, and tour this ugly country which has so much good music, though - also I have a very pretty flat in Naples, Via Generale Parisi, 6 with a gorgeous terrace, and a guest room, any try to use it as much as possible. […] I will be there now, from Dec. 5, up to April - working at a new opera for which Auden wrote the libretto.

Another opera ,the Prince of Homburg’ I finished two months ago will be performed in Hamburg, on May 22nd, and probably in Paris and Spoleto. […] My life is quite calm and happy, I get a big kick out of composing and, since two years, conducting. And I have a wonderful friend since 3 years who is also pupil in composing, very talented and very mediterranean […]“.
