Born in Pritzwalk in 1878 and buried in Tolkewitz in 1919, unfortunately not much can be said.
From February 14, 1904 to July 1, 1916 he was a trumpeter in the Royal Musical Orchestra, now called the Saxon State Orchestra in Dresden. His Russian Fantasy as well as his other compositions (Concerto D flat major for trumpet, Hungarian Rhapsody No.2, Sounds from Scotland to name but a few) are unfortunately far too seldom played nowadays. The works mentioned are already in progress.
Technique and brilliance as well as great musicality are required of the soloist. A wonderful work, which I can recommend to every student. I would like to thank Mr. Heinz Heinisch for the information about the biographical data and Ms. Yukiko Sano for preparing the piano reduction. Uwe Komischke
