    In 2026, the music world will celebrate Friedrich Cerha's 100th birthday. In view of this occasion, we would like to draw your attention to a selection of the most important works by the composer, who died in February 2023 - and to the new website friedrich-cerha.com.

    Between 1935 and 2019, Friedrich Cerha wrote over 250 works in various genres, from solo to opera. Many of these works deserve a permanent place in the concert hall - regardless of the anniversary year in 2026. The selection of Friedrich Cerha's major works is intended to help provide an overview of his extensive oeuvre and give guidance when programming his works.
