From a program recorded on November 21, 1985 as part of the San Francisco Exploratorium’s Speaking of Music series, Charles Amirkhanian interviews Gerhard Stäbler before a live audience. Gerhard Stäbler was born in Wilhelmsdorf near Ravensburg (Swabian, South Germany) in 1949. He studied composition with Nicolaus Huber and organ with Gerd Zacher. From 1982 to 1984 he taught music theory at the Essen Folkwang Hochschule für Musik. At the time of this recording in 1985 he was working as a producer for radio stations, and was a member of the Cultural Committee of the City of Essen. He was awarded the Cornelius Cardew Memorial Prize for “Fürs Vaterland”. In 1985 the Heinrich Stuftung awarded Stäbler a composing grant to enable him to work year round on his music. In 1984 he founded the Ensemble V of Essen which specializes in progressive music of the avant-garde. (from KPFA Folio)
