Josef Labor (1842-1924) was a Czech pianist, organist, and composer of late Romantic music. Labor was born in the town of Horowitz in Bohemia. At the age of three, he was left blind due to contracting smallpox. He attended the Institute for the Blind in Vienna and the Konservatorium der Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde where he studied composition with Bruckner's teacher, Simon Sechter, and piano with Eduard Pickhert. He toured Europe as a pianist and, in the process, formed a lasting friendship with King Georg V of Hanover, who was also blind. He was an influential music teacher and, as a friend of some key figures in Vienna, his importance was enhanced. He attended many musical evenings at private homes in Vienna with such musicians as Johannes Brahms, Clara Schumann, Gustav Mahler, Bruno Walter, and Richard Strauss.
