Baumann, Hermann (Rudolf Konrad)

Baumann, Hermann (Rudolf Konrad), noted German horn player and pedagogue; b. Hamburg, Aug. 1, 1934. He received training in Hamburg. In 1957 he became first horn in Dortmund, and then held that position with the Stuttgart Radio Sym. Orch. from 1961 to 1967. In 1964 he won the Munich Competition and began to pursue a solo career. In 1969 he became a prof. at the Staatliche Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, and in 1980 at the Stuttgart Hochschule für Musik. In addition to his appearances as a soloist with leading German and European orchs., he also was engaged with minor orchs. in North America. He also appeared in chamber music settings. After an engagement with the Buffalo Phil, on Jan. 12, 1993, he suffered a stroke; however, he was able to resume his career. While his repertoire embraces scores from the Baroque era to the moderns, he has won particular distinction for his performances of Mozart and Richard Strauss.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
