Collection consists of material related to career of the composer Walter Jurmann, including scores, lyrics, business and personal papers, correspondence, photographs, and biographic items.
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.
