Victor Herbert

Victor August Herbert (February 1, 1859 – May 26, 1924) was an Irish-born, German-raised American composer, cellist and conductor. Although Herbert enjoyed important careers as a cello soloist and conductor, he is best known for composing many successful operettas that premiered on Broadway from the 1890s to World War I. He was also prominent among the tin pan alley composers and was later a founder of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP). A prolific composer, Herbert produced two operas, a cantata, 43 operettas, incidental music to 10 plays, 31 compositions for orchestra, nine band compositions, nine cello compositions, five violin compositions with piano or orchestra, 22 piano compositions and numerous songs, choral compositions and orchestrations of works by other composers, among other music.

Famous quotes containing the word herbert:

    The harbingers are come. See, see their mark:
    White is their color, and behold my head.
    But must they have my brain? Must they dispark
    Those sparkling notions, which therein were bred?
    Must dullness turn me to a clod?
    Yet have they left me, Thou art still my God.
    —George Herbert (1593–1633)
