Robert Fuchs: Serenade op.21#
Robert Fuchs (1847 Frauenthal - 1927
Vienna) was mainly known as the composer of Serenades and had the
nickname Serenaden-Fuchs. His importance is more as a teacher at
the Vienna Conservatory rather than as a composer. The list of his
students includes some of the foremost composers of his day: Hugo Wolf,
Gustav Mahler, Franz Schreker, Alexander von Zemlinsky, Franz Schmidt,
Richard Heuberger und Leo Fall.
The musical example is the first
movement (Romanze) of his four movement Serenade for orchestra in
e minor (1878); you can also see a portrait of Robert Fuchs, (E. Stadler)
