Mourning for Luis Zett

Breitkopf & Härtel mourns the death of piano composer Luis Zett. He passed away unexpectedly on 21 March 2017. “Across Europe”, published in 2016, was the first Breitkopf edition of the experienced and versatile composer who also had a wonderful sense of humor. Just a few weeks ago, he was able to greet the publication of his piano book “Busy Lizzy & Lazy Daisy” with “16 curious flower pieces.”

 We had plans for the future, as actually the mentioned editions were supposed to be only the beginning of a fruitful cooperation! With his passing, our publishing house has lost not only a creative artist who - in a unique way - succeeded to connect beautiful sounds with a touch of quirkiness. We also have lost an amiable man whose warmth and wit will be sadly missed. His impishness and his swerving humor, often coming in by surprise, are going to live on in his composition.
