Richard Kleinmichel (Composer, Arranger)

Born: December 31, 1846 - Posen, Germany
Died: August 31, 1901 - Charlottenburg, Germany

The German pianist and composer, Richard Kleinmichel, received his first instruction from his father (Friedrich H. H. Kleinmichel, 1827-1894, a military and operatic conductor). In. 1863-1866 he completed his studies at the Leipzig Conservatorium, and settled at Hamburg

Richard Kleinmichel published in Hamburg many works of some importance, mostly for his own instrument. His second orchestral symphony was given at the Gewandhaus at Leipzig with success. In that town he held for some time the position of Kapellmeister at the Stadttheater, and subsequently held similar posts at Danzig and Magdeburg. His first opera, Manon, was successfully produced at Hamburg in 1883, and his Pfeifer von Dusenbach at the same place in 1891. He has also made simplified ' arrangements of the pianoforte scores of Wagner's later works.
