Ludwig Finscher 1930 - 2020

The International Balzan Foundation mourns the death of Ludwig Finscher, 2006 Balzan Prizewinner for the History of Western Music since 1600.

Finscher was awarded the Prize with this motivation:
«For his wide-ranging research activity in the field of musicology; for his penetrating, memorable insights into great works of music; for his profound commentaries on musical phenomena as well as his editorial direction of the new edition of the encyclopaedia Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, which makes the newest research accessible to a wide circle of musicians and music lovers».
