About the Author

Albrecht Dumling is a musicologist and music critic. After completing his doctorate on Arnold Schoenberg and Stefan George, he published the first comprehensive book on Bertolt Brecht's collaboration with composers. For several years he was a music critic for Der Tagesspiegel and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. His exhibition on Nazi music policies, Degenerate Music: A Critical Reconstruction, travelled to venues all over the world, including London, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Seville and Tel Aviv. Dumling was also Project Consultant for the DECCA CD series Entartete Musik. He is the chair of the society musica reanimata, and was the first recipient of the European Cultural Prize KAIROS.


Praise for the German edition:
"Dumling has traced a web of connections between yesterday's Germany and today's Australia, a history of disgrace, culpability, neglect, unlikely twists of fate and even the occasional happy end." (Shirley Apthorp, The Australian)
"Dumling is probably best known as the curator of Degenerate Music, an important exhibition about Nazi propaganda in music. In The Vanished Musicians his approach is like that of a curator who brings neglected historical exhibits to light." (Glenn Nicholls, Inside Story)
"The liveliness Dumling manages to transmit in his stories [...] makes the book a compelling read."(Andrea Bandhauer, Shofar)
