Bülow, Hans Von, 1830-1894



  • Existence: January 8, 1830 - February 12, 1894


Although Bülow’s catalogue of compositions contains 30 works, many for full symphony orchestra, he is better known for the work he did as a conductor and as a pianist. He is responsible for the premier performance of Liszt’s Sonata in B minor as well as Tchaikovsky’s first piano concerto. As a conductor he championed the works of Richard Wagner, having conducted the premier performance of Tristan und Isolde (June 20, 1865), and Die Meistersinger Von Nürnburg (June 21, 1868).
