Composer

As Max Reger’s cousin and as student of Joseph Rheinberger Hans Koessler, a friend of Johannes Brahms, grew up in a musically highly inspiring environment. Franz Liszt appointed him to his Royal Hungarian Music Academy in Budapest to influence as one of the most sought-after teachers of composition an entire generation of Hungarian composers. Among his students are such well-known names as Béla Bartók, Zoltán Kodály, Ernst von Dohnányi, Fritz Reiner and Emmerich Kálmán.
The Three Serious Choruses from 1891 to 1893 are based on texts of German romanticism dedicated to the religious contemplation of nature and the theme of love. Koessler’s four- to eight-part settings demonstrate the harmonic and contrapuntal richness of his compositional skills. All choral pieces include singable English lyrics in addition to the original German texts.
