January 15, Birthday of Johanna Müller-Hermann (1878-1941)

Since July, I have been concentrating solely on female composers.  You can read about that in my post from July 19.  If I can’t find one born on the calendar day, I won’t post.  On with today’s composer.

Johanna Müller-Hermann (15 January 1878 – 19 April 1941) was an Austrian composer and pedagogue.” (Wikipedia).  I could only find this one work by her, an incredibly beautiful string quartet.  Odd to find only that, because she supposedly was one of the foremost composers of chamber music of her time, as this piece demonstrates.

“String Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 6: I. Moderato”
String Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 6: II.Allegro Vivace

“String Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 6: III. Adagio con espressione”
String Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 6: IV.Allegro con spirito
