From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Hans Pfitzner (May 5, 1869 - May 22, 1949) was a German composer and self-described anti-modernist. His best known work is probably the opera Palestrina.

He is the author of "Futuristengefahr" ("Danger of Futurists"), written in response to Ferruccio Busoni's Sketch for a New Aesthetic of Music: ""Busoni places all his hopes for Western music in the future and understands the present and past as a faltering beginning, as the preparation. But what if it were otherwise? What if we find ourselves presently at a high point, or even that we have already passed beyond it?"

Pfitzner was born in Moscow in Russia and died in Salzburg in Austria.
