Vita

My name is Gerhard Unger (not related to opera tenor Gerhard Unger [1916-2011]). I have been working in the music industry for more than 30 years, mainly in the field of classical music. Experienced in retail, distribution, artist management, and in recent years especially as freelance editor of the monthly new release magazines of distributor harmonia mundi/Integral/PIAS (harmoniamundimagazin.com), I’m able to provide valuable services to companies in the cultural field. In addition to extensive knowledge of music, my strengths are analytical thinking, organisation of operational processes and structured work, as well as sensitive handling of language and confident use of music-specific vocabulary.
