The composer Carl Orff in intensive conversation with his daughter, Godela Orff

Godela Orff, the only daughter of Carl Orff, and I were married for many decades. Shortly before her death, she entrusted her artistic legacy to me and asked me to publish it, which I will be doing successively on this website.
The following pages will provide personal accounts of my father-in-law Carl Orff, my mother-in-law Alice Solcher and my adopted son Christoph Florian Büchtemann, the child of Godela Büchtemann-Orff.
