Max, Hermann


Without the efforts of Hermann Max we would have a false or incomplete picture of an important period in musical history, the middle German music surrounding Johann Sebastian Bach. The music of Bach, his sons and countless relations, music by the Thomaskantors, who succeeded and preceded him and by his contemporaries, colleagues and pupils make up a whole musical landscape, which has been rediscovered through Max's work. Countless recordings for the WDR (West German Radio) and many prize‐winning CDs bear witness to this ambitious project, which he has pursued for many years. In 1998 he was awarded the Telemann‐Prize by the city of Magdeburg for his engagement on behalf of Telemann's music.
