Jakob Rosenhain (1813-1894). German pianist. A one-act opera entitled "Der Besuch im Irrenhauses" was very successfully produced at Frankfort-on-the-Main in 1834, and was frequently repeated, notably at Weimar under the leadership of Hummel. His second opera, "Liswenna," was less fortunate. In 1837 Rosenhain went to London. On his return he settled in Paris, where, in conjunction with J. B. Cramer, he established a school of pianoforte-playing. Upon the completion of his third opera, "Volage et Jaloux," which was produced at Baden in 1863, Rosenhain permanently retired from the operatic stage in order to devote himself more exclusively to instrumental music. Among his principal compositions in this field may be mentioned a symphony in G minor; symphony in F minor; symphony "Im Frühling."

I've posted two etudes by the composer.

Vinzenz Lachner (1811 in Rain am Lech – 1893 in Karlsruhe) was a German composer and conductor.

He was the youngest brother of Franz, also a composer and conductor, and well known as a close friend of Schubert. As a composer Lachner was essentially self-taught. He was first educated by his father Anton, the municipal organist, and after Anton's death was schooled in Augsburg, where he subsequently scratched out a living teaching music until his brother Franz arranged for him to become conductor and house musician for Earl Mycielski of Coscevitz in the Grand Duchy of Poznan. In 1831 he moved to Vienna to continue his musical training, becoming assistant conductor at the Court Opera and organist at a Protestant church (though he himself was Catholic). In 1836 he became court conductor at Mannheim in succession to Franz, where he was so highly valued that his contract was renewed and extended whenever he received offers from other musical centres. In all he remained there for 37 years, during which Mannheim had the reputation of performing the largest repertoire of operas of any city in Germany. Nevertheless, Lachner travelled and conducted widely, as far afield as London.

Lachner encouraged a number of prominent younger musicians, notably Bruch, levi and Wolfsohn. However, instinctively conservative in his tastes, he stood out publicly against the cult of Wagner, but the formation of a Wagner Association in Mannheim at the beginning of the 1870s was the beginning of the end for his career. Wagner himself came to conduct in Mannheim and, having already engineered the removal of Franz Lachner from Munich, campaigned for Vinzenz to be retired, which was brought about in 1873. He settled afterwards in Karlsruhe, where he continued to teach. Like all the Lachner brothers, he was friendly with Brahms. He died after a number of strokes at the age of 81.

I have posted Lachner's Op 57 Prelude and Toccata.

Did he write anything for organ? And speaking of organ, please go to Music from British Isles. ;)

Does anyone have the score of the Nocturne in A flat, Op.8 No.1 by Adolf Gutmann (1819-1882)?

The usual places only have the Nocturne Lyrique and the Op.20 No.7 Nocturne.

Thanks very much.
