Klaus-Peter Bruchmann


Klaus-Peter Bruchmann (16 October 1932, Borgsdorf, Hohen Neuendorf, Germany – 21 August 2017, Borgsdorf, Hohen Neuendorf, Germany) was a German composer.

Klaus-Peter Bruchmann came into close contact with music in his youth. After studying at the former Stern Conservatory in Berlin, he worked for radio, mainly in the field of orchestral and symphonic entertainment.

Bruchmann, who was no longer active as a composer since a stroke in the late 1990s, also became the initiator of the “Borgsdorfer Kreis”, an association of German composers who predominantly composed symphonic and concert works, etc. for wind orchestra. Other members of the “Borgsdorfer Kreis” included Hans Hütten and Wolfgang Schumann.

Bruchmann was known especially for composing works of the symphonic brass medium.
