Max Bruch


In 1870 Bruch summed up his three years as director of music at Sondershausen court (1867 – 1870): “Sondershausen was tremendously beneficial.”
It was there that he completed his well-known violin concerto no. 1 in g minor, op 26 (an autograph of this composition can be seen in the music section of Sondershausen Palace Museum), and wrote his first and second symphonies as well as eight other compositions.
Moreover, he gained experience in conducting concerts and operas and became friendly with Philipp Spitta, the first Bach biographer.
