Bernhard Scholz (Composer, Arranger)

Born: March 30, 1835 - Mainz, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany
Died: December 26, 1916 - Munich, Bavaria, Germany

The German German conductor, composer and teacher of music, Bernhard E. Scholz, was intended by his father to take over his father's business (Lithographische Druckerei und Verlag Jos. Scholz) and studied to be a printer at Imp. Lemercier in Paris. But music became his career. He was a student of Ernst Pauer (piano) in Mainz, and 1855-1856 of Siegfried Dehn (counterpoint) in Berlin. He also took voice lessons with Antonio Sangiovanni in Milan.

Bernhard Scholz first taught at the Munich Conservatory and was court Kapellmeister in Zürich, Nuremberg and from 1859 to 1865 in Hannover. Between 1865 and 1866 he was director of the Cherubini Society in Florence and also taught at the Stern Conservatory and the Kullak Conservatory. From 1871 to 1883 he directed the Orchestra Society in Breslau. In 1883 he was appointed director of the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt, a post he held until 1908. He died in Munich in 1916.

His Piano Concerto was championed by Clara Schumann, who included it in her repertory.
