Biography:

[English version below]

André (Andreas) Singer: Subotica (Maria-Theresiopel, heute Serbien), 01.11.1907 - 01.11.1996, New York
André Singer kam 1925 an die Musikakademie in Wien, um bei Joseph Marx Komposition und bei Paul Weingarten Klavier zu studieren. Er arbeitete als stellvertretender Leiter an der Belgrader Oper, später unter dem Namen Otto Andreas in Wien für das von ihm mitbegründete Kabarett Literatur am Naschmarkt als Texter und Komponist sowie als Klavierbegleiter. Von 1936 bis 1938 lebte er in Paris und London und emigrierte dann nach Amerika. In den USA begann er seine Karriere am Theater. Zusätzlich organisierte er mit anderen im Exil Lebenden Kabarettprogramme wie From Vienna und Reunion in New York. Für die Armee stellte er Radioprogramme zusammen. 1946 ging Singer ans Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, New York, und unterrichtete auch an der New Yorker New School und am City College Komposition, Klavier, Musikanalyse und -theorie. Seine vielleicht berühmteste Arbeit Canticle of Peace (1957) wurde in Europa mehrfach aufgeführt. Seine über 100 Kompositionen für Orchester, deren Bogen sich vom Opernhaften bis zum Kammermusikalischen spannt, sowie seine Werke für Klavier waren von Literatur, Satire und den bildenden Künsten inspiriert und wurden vom Orchester und den Ensembles des College in und um New York zur Aufführung gebracht.

André (Andreas) Singer: Subotica (Maria-Theresiopel, now Serbia), 01.11.1907 - 01.11.1996, New York
André Singer attended the Academy of Music in Vienna in 1925 to study composition with Joseph Marx and piano with Paul Weingarten. Singer was deputy director at the Belgrade Opera. In Vienna, he co-founded and wrote texts and compositions as Otto Andreas for the cabaret Literatur am Naschmarkt. From 1936 to 1938, he lived in Paris and London before he immigrated to the United States, where he took up theater work. In addition, he organized cabaret programs like From Vienna or Reunion in New York with fellow refugee artists. He served in the Army, helping to organize musical radio programs. From 1946 onwards, he taught composition, piano, and analysis and theory at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville and the New School and City College in New York City. His work Canticle of Peace (1957) was toured in Europe. However, his more than one hundred compositions of orchestral, choral, operatic, chamber and keyboard works, which drew inspiration from literature, especially satire, and the visual arts, were performed mainly by the college orchestra and ensembles in and around New York.
