Peter Brötzmann

March 6, 1941, Remscheid – June 22, 2023 Wuppertal

Peter Brötzmann has shaped the history of improvised music in Germany since 1966 in the context of first joint activities and helped it to achieve international recognition. From 1968 on, the history of Free Music Production (FMP) began with the first Total Music Meeting in Berlin. This history is unimaginable without Peter Brötzmann. FMP-Publishing mourns the death of Peter Brötzmann.
