Charles Martin Loeffler (1861 - 1935)

The German-born composer and violinist Charles Martin Loeffler was a pupil of Joachim and Eduard Rappoldi in Berlin and then of Massart in Paris. The imprisonment of his father on political charges made Loeffler hostile to Germany, and in 1881 he moved from Paris to America, where he was for 21 years second concertmaster of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.


Loeffler’s varied compositions include choral works, an opera, incidental music, and orchestral and chamber works. In style he was influenced by French music, having adopted France rather than Germany as his country. In his best-known work, Music for Four Stringed Instruments, written in memory of Victor Chapman, the first American aviator killed in the Great War, he makes use of the plainchant of the Easter Mass Introit.
