Martin Richard Georgi was born on 1 February 1889 in Bockau (Germany). He studied at a teacher's seminar in Schneeberg and later became teacher in Gornsdorf and Klingenthal. From 1914 to 1919 he taught in Thum and also held the position of the cantor there. From 1919 to 1922 Martin Georgi studied music with Prof. Polenz in Annaberg and became a music teacher and later Studienrat. Martin Georgi died 06 February 1969 in Thum.
Martin Georgi composed mainly chamber music and Singspiele. His work list contains several violin and viola sonatas, string trios, a few works for organ, a Grafenstein Suite for string orchestra and at least two string quartets - one from 1939 and one from 1942.
The autograph manuscript in my possession is the String quartet op.57 which was written between July and November 1939. It consists of the four movements I. Im raschen Schritt - II. Gesangsmäßig - III. Menuett - IV. Sehr rasch.
The snippet below is a computer realisation of the finale of the second movement "Gesangsmäßig".
