Born in Breslau, Prussia, August 13, 1831.
He spent a number of years at home under Hesse, Lustner, and Brosig, and later studied at the conservatory in Leipzig, and under Hauptmann and Liszt. From 1853 he resided at Leipzig, teaching harmony, counterpoint, composition, and the pianoforte. His compositions are numerous and varied, including symphonies, serenades for orchestra, pieces for chorus, and ballet music. As a teacher Jadassohn was highly esteemed, and he was the author of musical text books still in general use.
He died in Leipzig, February 1, 1901.
Born in Triest, Austria, March 5, 1832.
He was a son of Eduard Jaell, well known in his time as a violinist. Alfred Jaell made his debut as a pianist in Venice in 1843. Throughout his career he was very successful. He married Marie Trautmann, who, like himself, was a pianist of exceptional ability, and was also a composer and writer. His own compositions, which are numerous, are almost entirely for the piano.
He died in Paris, February 27, 1882.
Born in Konigsberg, Prussia, January 12, 1837.
His musical education was begun under Ehlert and Marpurg, but in the main he was his own instructor. While yet under twenty he composed many pieces. He spent some time teaching in Russia, and then studied with Schumann. In 1857 he was conductor at the Posen City Theater; then he paid a two years' visit to Copenhagen, where he became an intimate pupil of Gade. From 1860 to 1866 he resided in his native place, and wrote the greater part of his works. In spirit and style he was a follower of Schumann and Robert Franz. His compositions for the piano rank high, but his particular genius is displayed in song writing. Many of his songs - more than 150 have been published - are popular in the United States.
He died in Baden, January 23, 1879.
