Wilfried Fischer (Conductor)

Born: 1938 - Germany

The German conductor, music pedagogue and musicologist, Wilfried Fischer, was educated as conductor, pianist and musical educator at the conservatory in Hamburg, after that he studied musicology, German philology and literature until promotion in 1966 at the University of Hamburg. Among his most important publications is "Johann Sebastian Bach. Verschollene Solokonzerte in Rekonstruktionen".

In 1966 Wilfried Fischer started working as a music director at the University of Tübingen. His work with the Collegium Musicum der Universität Tübingen was dedicated to forgotten masterpieces of all periods. From these efforts not only this, but another already published LP was produced, with the full reproduction of the cantata Davidde penitente by W.A. Mozart (Corona LP).

From 1972 to 1981, Wilfried Fischer was Professor for music education at the Pedagogical University of Flensburg; from 1981 to 1983 Professor for music education at the University of Cologne; and from 1983 to 2003 Professor for artistic practice in music education, including choral direction, music and its didactics at the University of Paderborn.

Wilfried Fischer himself continued his work as conductor for choirs and orchestras and worked as an arranger. Between 1983 and 1999 he conducted the orchestra of the University of Paderborn. He wrote several publications for music education for primary school, rounding up his pedagogical work.
