Johannes Korndörfer (born in 1980) is a German music theorist, church musician and composer.


Korndörfer attended the Komponistenklasse Dresden, a school for young composers, studying with Silke Fraikin from 1991 to 1998.[1] He then studied composition, music theory and piano at the Musikhochschule für Dresden, and further studied musicology there, graduating in 2006.[2] Among his teachers were Jörg Herchet for composition, Clemens Kühn and John Leigh for music history, and Christine Haupt for piano.[3] From 2006, Korndörfer has taught music theory, at the Hochschule für Musik Carl Maria von Weber Dresden[3] and its associated Sächsisches Landesgymnasium für Musik Carl Maria von Weber [de], at the TU Dresden from 2010,[3] and from 2011 at the Berlin University of the Arts.[2] In 2009 he published a book about the composer Bernd Alois Zimmermann. He was a developer of the multimedia program to train hearing, by the Dresden Zentrum für Musiktheorie (Centre for music theory).[3][2]

Korndörfer became instructor of the Komponistenklasse in 1998.[1] He was also appointed organist of the Schifferkirche Maria am Wasser [de] in Dresden-Hosterwitz [de] in 1999.[1] Together with Matthias Herbig, he founded a choir and the ensemble Maria am Wasser.[1][4]

His orchestral composition Horch! was premiered in 2004 by the Sinfonietta Dresden [de], conducted by Milko Kersten.[5]


The Komponistenklasse was awarded the 2015 Initiativpreis für Kunst und Kultur of Saxony, for its engagement for the early training in music creation.[6]
