Walter Schütt was born on 3 September 1875 in Berlin (Germany). There is no biographical information about the composer beside the fact that he died on 16 September 1952. But there are many articles and reviews in newspapers around 1920 that report about his operettas and vaudevilles. It seems that "Der Tanzanwalt" was the most successful of his compositions. It was written in 1912 and performed many times on different stages in the following years. Other operettas include "Das fatale Ei" (1913), "Der Kuss am Nil" (1913) or "Der Leiblakai" (1917). Walter Schütt also composed songs of his "6 Lieder op.4" and "4 Lieder op.6" were published by Stahl in Berlin.
In my possession is an autograph manuscript of the song "Die junge Bleicherin" for voice and piano by Walter Schütt. The song sets the poem by Detlev von Liliencron into music and was composed in 1900. The song does not belong to neither the cycle op.4 nor to op.6 and so is unpublished.
