Karl Feilitzsch‘ compositions should be divided between those works which he composed independently and those he wrote purely on a commercial basis. In 1941, he married his distant cousin Gerda Freiin von Feilitzsch. Their six children were born between 1942 – 1957 and with the growing responsibilities for his family, he was forced to work exclusively on a commercial basis for theatre- and film productions, as well as many advertising films and music spots between the early 1950s and the mid 1960ies.
His early oeuvre dates from the end of the Great War to his draft in 1939 and consists of a multitude of Lieder and his first two operas which were performed when he was 28 and 29 years old. After his return from Russia in 1943, he converted to Catholicism and began to write works for the stage which were strongly influenced by his experiences in the war and under the Nazi regime. In the years immediately after 1945, Karl Feilitzsch was very involved in the Munich cabaret “Die Schaubude” composing the satirical – political lyrics of, a.o., Bert Brecht and Erich Kästner.
