Erich Meyer-Helmund

In 19th Century, 20th Century, Composers by Vogler & Lindqvist2 Comments

Not much is to find about the composer Erik Meyer-Helmund (1862 – 1932). He was born in St Petersburg, but lived and worked in Berlin as a composer, pianist and singer. He wrote five operas, some ballet- and incidental music for theatres. But most of all he wrote lots and lots of popular songs and salon pieces, performed by Lotte Lehmann, Joseph Schmidt, Fritz Kreisler and later Fritz Wunderlich, only to name a few.
I couldn’t find any picture of him. If you have one, please send it over! > Brigitta did! Thanks!

    Hi, Hélène & Philipp,
    first of all my congrats and admiration for this great project and all the resarch behind it!!! I am following your blog for some months now and am always excited with a new song you publish. I found a picture of this composer in the IMSLP site: http://imslp.org/images/2/24/Erik_Meyer-Hemund.jpg
    I wish you both a merry Christmas and a happy New Year full of new findings!!!
