From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jiří Pauer About this sound czech pronunciation (born 22 February 1919 in Libušín near Kladno – died 28 December 2007 in Prague) was a Czech composer.

Pauer studied first with Otakar Šín, then from 1943 to 1946 at the Prague Conservatory with Alois Hába, and finally with Pavel Bořkovec at the Academy of the Musical Arts. He has composed many pieces, many of which focus on the brass orchestral instruments, symphonies, and further orchestra pieces, a horn concerto and a trumpet concerto, chamber music pieces, and piano pieces. His opera Zdravÿ nemocnÿ, based on Molière's Le Malade imaginaire, premiered at the Prague National Theatre on 22 May 1970.

In 1989 Jiří Pauer was dismissed from his post as general director of the National Theatre in Prague, because of his support for the policies of the former Communist Czechoslovak government. Pauer had locked staff out of the National and Smetana theatres on 17 November 1989 to prevent the opera, ballet and drama companies from staging protest performances. After a three-week strike Pauer was replaced by Ivo Žídek.[1]
