Austrian composer and educator Balduin Sulzer has passed away - aged 87.

A graduate of the University of Vienna, Bruckner Conservatory and the Vienna Academy of Music, Professor Sulzer served a long term teaching position on faculty at the Bruckner Conservatory, in Linz, Austria - his famed students including conductor Franz Welser-Möst, tenor Kurt Azesberger and the soprano Anna Maria Pammer.
