A Jew from Vienna in Buenos Aires: Guillermo Graetzer (1914 - 1993)

Musical life in both northern and southern America benefitted from the expulsion of Jewish musicians from central Europe, especially if they had the chance to become fully integrated. This was the case with Wilhelm Grätzer (Guillermo Graetzer in Argentinia). He had studied with Ernst Lothar v. Knorr and Paul Hindemith in Berlin, and later with Paul Amadeus Pisk in Vienna. 1938 he fled, together with his close family, to Buenos Aires. He became an influential teacher and a well respected composer. His music encompasses different styles from Post-Hindemith to serialism.
