*26 Jan 1929 Leipzig
Erich Hartmann studied from 1939-1939 at the Leipzig Conservatorium of Music (nowadays the „Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy Hochschule für Musik und Theater”) double bass with Theodor Albin Findeisen and Max Schulz, as well as music theory and composition with Hermann Grabner. He was called up for work duty and military service, and was only able to finish his studies after being wounded in 1942. From 1943 to 1985 he played in the Berlin Philharmonic, and in 1967, along with Klaus Stoll, Wolfgang Kohly and Manfred Dupak, he founded the Berlin Philharmonic Double Bass Quartet.
As a composer, Erich Hartmann devoted particular attention to his main instrument. In addition to a reasonable number of works for other ensembles, he wrote numerous ones for double bass – double bass solo, ensembles of up to 8 double basses, mixed ensembles, and double bass and orchestra – which enjoyed successful premieres and many repeat performances.
