Theodor Anton Blumer (1881-1964) was a German composer and conductor. He studied composition with Felix Draeseke and W. Brookman at the Dresden Conservatory. In 1931 he became the conductor of the Dresden Radio Orchestra and after this moved to Leipzig to head the Middle German Radio Orchestra there for eleven years. He spent the rest of his life in Berlin. Blumer's compositions include music for solo piano, string orchestra, and mixed chamber groups, as well as works for larger ensembles, including a piano quintet, two violin sonatas, string trio (1928), a flute sonata, four woodwind quintets, a comic opera Die Funfuhrthee (The Five-o-Clock Tea) (produced in Berlin and in Bremen in 1912) and a symphonic poem Erlosung. Some of his chamber music has been recorded on three CDs on the label Crystal Records.
