Composer Heinrich von Herzogenberg

Heinrich von Herzogenberg - Small Photo
1843 – 1900

An Austrian composer and conductor descended from a French aristocratic family. He was early attracted to the music of Wagner, but through the study of J.S. Bach he was led to a strong attachment to the classical tradition and became an ardent admirer of Brahms. Herzogenberg was a learned composer of definite gifts.
