Robert Vollstedt

Born: 1854

Died: 1919

Birthplace: Germany

Robert Vollstedt, another German composer who composed very much in the Viennese idiom, was born near Hamburg in Germany but very little is known about his musical education. As principal clarinettist in the Hamburg Opera House orchestra, he remained with them for most of his working career and he must have received some formal training. Although Vollstedt was primarily a march composer, he has been remembered mostly for his waltz Jolly Brothers, which became known internationally.
