Adolf-Uthmann-Gasse, named on March 23, 1932 after the choir composer Adolf Uthmann.

Dyer and health insurance employee by profession, Gustav Adolf Uthmann (June 29, 1867 – June 22, 1920) was probably the most prominent and popular artist personality in the German workers’ movement. He acquired musical knowledge on a self-taught basis, directed several workers’ choirs from 1891 and composed more than 400 choral songs, some of which were often performed in Vienna. His best-known works are “Empor zum Licht”, “Tord Feldson” and “Sturm”. In 1906, at the request of the federal board of workers’ singers, Uthmann arranged the Internationale for male choirs.
