Paul Burkhard (Composer)

Born: 21st December 1911, Zurich, Switzerland

Died: 6th September 1977, Zell, Switzerland

Paul Burkhard was a Swiss composer. He primarily wrote oratorios, musicals and operettas. The contemporaneous and similarly named Swiss composer Willy Burkhard was no relation to him.

Probably his most famous artistic creation was the song "O mein Papa" ("Oh! My Pa-Pa") about the death of a beloved clown-father, written for the musical Der schwarze Hecht (re-issued in 1950 as Das Feuerwerk) that premiered in April 1939.
