Austrian composer and conductor Heinrich von Herzogenberg was born in Graz on 10 June 1843, the descendent of an aristocratic French family. He attended a Jesuit school in Feldkirch, also studying in Dresden, Graz and Munich, and studied law, philosophy and political science at university in Vienna, before studying music with Felix Otto Dessoff.
He co-founded the Leipzig Bach-Verein, and was its artistic director for ten years. During this period, Ethel Smyth was one of his composition pupils.
From 1885 he was professor of composition at Berlin's Hochschule für Musik.
Herzogenberg died suddenly in Wiesbaden on 9 October 1900, aged fifty-seven.
