 Update me on new releases by Volkmann

Friedrich Robert Volkmann (4/06/1815 - 10/29/1883)

Born in Saxony and trained in Leipzig, Robert Volkmann settled in Budapest in 1841. He remained there for much of the rest of his life, teaching composition at the newly founded Budapest Academy.

Vocal and Instrumental Music

Volkmann composed a number of songs and other vocal works. He won some fame for his Piano Trio in B minor, Op. 5, dedicated to Liszt, and a greater international reputation with his Symphony No. 1 of 1862/3. His other orchestral compositions include another symphony, a Cello Concerto, a Konzertstück for piano and orchestra, and an Overture and Entr’actes for Shakespeare’s Richard III (the Overture in fact a symphonic poem).
