Fridemann Leipold, born 1959 in Erlangen, visited the Melanchton-School in Nuremberg and learned to play the violine alongside. At the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich he studied German philology as well as history and graduated with an interdisciplinary work on Alban Berg’s »Wozzek«. From 1987-89, he absolved a Traineeship at Bayerischer Rundfunk, where he started working as freelancer at BR-Klassik afterwards. In 2000, he became editor for chamber music and in 2011 assumed the department »Symphonik«. He published book chapters about contemporary music (»Composers in Bavaria: Werner Heider«; Tutzing 1983) or musical theatre (»Welche Wonne, welche Lust – Ein anderes Opernbuch«; Zürich 2001). He wrote for various publications as the website of the Goethe Institute or the yearbook of the Bavarian Academy of Fine Arts and moderated public artist talks, e.g. at the »Paradisi gloria« concert series of sacred music by the Munich Radio Orchestra.
