Gottfried Müller was recognized as a very promising young composer during the Nazi era - which is exactly what after that era prevented his music from being recognized as much as it would have deserved. Born in Dresden, he taught at the conservatories of Leipzig (1942-1945) and Nuremberg (1961-1979), and when the first Wikipedia article was published about him it almost told nothing else about his music than that he wrote a cantata titled "Führerworte" in 1942. But during the long remainder of his life he no longer was a Nazi and composed very erudite, heartfelt and soft-spoken music in a conservatively modernistic idiom.
