Robert Hermann (composer)

Robert Hermann (1869–1912) was a Swiss composer, born at Bern. He studied music at the Frankfurt Conservatory in 1891, and with Engelbert Humperdinck (1893–94). In 1895 the Berlin Philharmonic premiered his Symphony in C,[1] and much of his further career was spent in Germany. His works include pieces for violin and piano, songs, a concert overture in D minor,[2] a piano quartet,[3] a piano trio,[4] a violin sonata,[5] etc.

In 2009 Sterling Records released a recording of Hermann's 2 symphonies conducted by Christopher Fifield.[6]
