Walter Eilers

It is little known about the composer Walter Eilers. I wrote together all the information I could find. So if you know more about him, I would be pleased if you share these details with me.


Walter Eilers was born on 12 January 1896 in Hamburg (Germany). He studied at the universities of Hamburg and Berlin. I could not find any information about the activities of Walter Eilers. But there are a few references to his compositions: The musical "Malayische Träume" by Walter Eilers with a text by Konny Thoss was premiered at the Städtische Bühnen Münster on 9 June 1951. And some of his compositions were published by Sikorski and other publishing houses.
The "Tonkünstler-Lexikon" by Frank & Altmann from 1936 reports that Walter Eilers also used the pseudonyms "John Walter" and "Eilers-Welter".
It is unknown when Walter Eilers deceased.


In my possession is a small collection of autograph musical manuscripts by Walter Eilers. This collection include:


  • concert waltz "Musenkinder"
    My archive contains the autograph full score of the composition scored for large orchestra as well nearly all parts. I also own the autograph full score of the version for small orchestra of this composition.
  • Meine Frau, der Lausbub
    Schwankoperette in 3 Akten (roughly translated: droll story operetta in 3 parts), text by Konny Thoss and Bernhard Müller. Composed around 1945.
    My archive contains a piano reduction of the complete operetta, originally published through Capitol Verlag in Berlin, later distributed through Bühnenverlag Julius Feuchtinger and finally through Efte-Verlag.
    In addition there are libretti for the non-singing parts "Benno" and "Adele".
    The archive also contains instrumental parts for the "Paso doble" from the operetta as well as some, but not all parts for the complete operetta.
  • Malayische Träume
    My archive contains two scenes from the musical in autograph full score, these are the scenes 5 and 6. In addition I own the complete part for violin II in copy and several autograph sketches and incomplete parts.
  • several incomplete manuscripts that belong to an unknown operetta or opera. It includes the role names: Isa, Gabriele, Rudolf, Reckling, Wotan, Paul, Käte.


Below one can find the full score for the concert waltz "Musenkinder" in the version for small orchestra:
