Ignaz Brüll

Born: 7th November 1846

Died: 17th September 1907

Birthplace: Prostějov (Proßnitz) in Moravia

Ignaz Brüll was a Moravian born pianist and composer who lived and worked in Vienna. His operatic compositions included Das Goldene Kreuz (The Golden Cross), which became a repertory work for several decades after its first production in 1875, but eventually fell into neglect after being banned by the Nazis because of Brüll's Jewish origins. He also wrote a small corpus of finely crafted works for the concert hall and recitals. Brüll's compositional style was lively but unabashedly conservative, in the vein of Mendelssohn and Schumann.
