Compositions
Frank Michael Beyer

(1928 -2008)
The musical aesthetics of Frank Michael Beyer owe much to his childhood years in Greece. The sure craftsmanship of his work as a composer, performer (organ, piano, conducting) and teacher is spiritually and sensually rooted in a 'classical' tendency towards formal synthesis of individual elements and in a sensual Mediterranean correlation of creative processes. Beyer studied in Berlin and Leipzig and was a teacher at the Berlin Music College where he founded the Institute for New Music in 1990. Frank Michael Beyer spent 1986-2003 as Director of the music department of the Academy of the Arts in Berlin.
