February 9, 1909, Blumenthal – December 16, 2007
Harald Genzmer was a German composer of contemporary classical music.
During the early part of the second world war he served as a military band clarinetist. When his pianistic abilities were noticed by the Musikmeister, he was put on detached duties as a pianist/accompanist for Lazarettenkonzerte, concerts for recuperating wounded officers.
He taught at the Volksmusikschule Berlin-Neukölln and Munich Hochschule für Musik. Among his notable students was Bertold Hummel and the Egyptian composer Gamal Abdel-Rahim.
