Composer Walter Jurmann was born October 12, 1903, in Vienna, Austria. He began his career as a piano player in Austria and
in 1927 moved to Berlin, where he became a pianist at the Eden Hotel. During his time in Berlin, Jurmann collaborated with
the lyricist Fritz Rotter (1900-1984) and the Polish composer Bronislaw Kaper (1902-1983), creating a number of hit songs.
In the early 1930s, Jurmann and Kaper also wrote songs for German and French films, and Jurmann wrote revues during a stay
in Paris in 1933. He sometimes issued music under pseudonyms while working in Europe.
