Moszkowski Return to List of Composers       Post your comments to the blog here. 
Moritz Moszkowski was born in Poland in 1854. This composer belonged to the Romantic period, and died in 1925. Moszkowski

Moritz Moszkowski was a famous pianist in the later 19th and early 20th century, who is now mainly remembered for the set of  Spanish dances he  composed.  Although Moszkowski  often played first violin in ensembles and even wrote a Violin Concerto, Moszkowski was more famous for his enormous success as a concert pianist, conductor, distinguished teacher, and composer whose appealing piano music was found a century ago in nearly every living room  (In contrast today, few living rooms boast a piano, now replaced by "Home Theatre").

He was born in what is now called Wroclaw in Poland, but in his day it was part of Germany, and called Breslau, East Prussia.. He studied at three of Germany's finest music schools. At the Dresden Conservatory, he created his first compositions. When the family moved to Berlin in 1869, he studied in turn at the Stern Conservatory and at Germany's largest private institution for music education, the Kullak Academy. Founded by one of Czerny's pupils, the Academy specialized in piano instruction and Moszkowski later served on the faculty for many years.

Moszkowski's impressive debut as a pianist in 1873 in Berlin was followed by the first in a long succession of triumphant European concert tours. At the peak of his celebrity, he left Berlin in 1897 to settle permanently in Paris with his wife, the sister of French composer-pianist Cecile Chaminade, and their two children. He remained active as performer and composer and was a much sought-after teacher.
