This chapter begins by describing Karl Amadeus Hartmann the least known of the eight composers discussed in this book. It explains that the reason for his unpopularity lies in the fact that during the Third Reich, he was the least exposed artistically, and this by his own choice, but also because of his local insularity, as he left Munich only occasionally and without fanfare. It discusses his early musical quests and wartime compositions. It clarifies Hartmann's dependence on foreign or German émigré musicians, both for his social contacts and for his professional reputation. It narrates that Hartmann chose to stay in Germany even after the World War II. It also mentions some of his interactions with another famous composer, Egk.

Keywords:   Karl Amadeus Hartmann, Third Reich, Munich, World War II, Berlin, Egk
