Mihalovich, Edmund von



Dramatic composer of the neoGerman School; born at Fericsancze, Slavonia. He received his common school education and his early musical training at Pesth. In 1865 he studied theory with Hauptmann at Leipsic, and later he went to Munich, where Hans von Bülow taught him piano. He is an ardent admirer and disciple of Wagner and his writings reflect the standards of the new German Operatic School. He wrote the ballads, Hero and Leander; La ronde du sabbat: Das Geisterschiff, and Die Nixe; the three-act opera, Toldi, Hagbarth und Signe, and some pianomusic.
