Jungmann, Albert


German composer and teacher; born at Langensalza, Prussia, and died at Pandorf, near Vienna. Studied theory from Leibrock, and piano from Korner; was professor in the St. Cecilia Academy at Rome for some time, and finally settled in Vienna in 1853. Managed Diabella & Company for Mr. C. A. Spina, whom he ultimately succeeded under the name Jungmann and Lerch. He wrote hundreds of piano-pieces, mostly salon-music, which were very popular because of their melody and practical value. He also composed songs, and some good orchestral music. His Heimweh (Homesickness) has had a wide circulation.
