The following is a translation of Feder’s biography. in DAS HAYDN LEXIKON (Laaber Verlag, 2010; p. 221):
“One of the leading Haydn scholars of the 20th century, director for over three decades of the Joseph Haydn-Insitut and editor of the complete-works edition Joseph Haydn Werke, Georg Feder studied 1949-1955 in Tübingen, Göttingen, and Kiel, where he graduated in 1955 with a dissertation entitled “Bachs Werke in ihren Bearbeitungen” [Bach’s Works in Their Arrangements]. From 1957 onwards he worked at the Joseph Haydn-Institut [Cologne], whose direction he assumed in 1960, as successor to Jens Peter Larsen. In 1965 he initiated the monograph series Haydn-Studien. From 2000 onwards he was co-editor of the Eisenstädter Haydn-Berichte [Esienstadt Haydn Reports]. In 1988 he was granted the title of Professor, and in 2004 the Österreichische Ehrenkreuz für Wissenschaft und Kunst Erster Klasse [Austrian Cross of Honor for Science and Art, First Class].
“54 volumes of the [Haydn] complete works appeared under Feder’s direction until 1990, eight of which he prepared himself as editor or co-editor [4 volumes of string quartets, 3 volumes of piano sonatas, 1 volume of masses]. In addition, among several other editions, Dr. Feder prepared an edition of Niccolò Piccinni’s La canterina, a parallel setting of Haydn’s opera of the same name. He published well over 100 articles on Haydn and on questions of music philology. The spectrum [of his studies] reaches from specialized scholarly studies to introductory monographs for a broader public, like those on Haydn’s string quartets (1998) and The Creation (1999).”
