Joseph Gabriel Rheinberger was an eminent German organist, conductor, composer, and pedagogue who lived from 1839 until 1901. He spent most of his life in Munich, studying at the Munich Conservatory and serving as principal conductor of the Munich Choral Society. He also taught organ, piano and composition at the Munich Conservatory. His reputation as an organ teacher was remarkable and students from around the world came to study with him. His students included Humperdinck, Wolf-Ferrari, Thuille, Sandberger, Kroyer, Trunk, Chadwick, and Furtwangler. Few of Rheinberger's compositions are performed today. Yet he composed 20 organ sonatas, 2 symphonies, 2 organ concerti, and a large number of vocal works. His wife Franziska was a poetess and Joseph set much of her poetry to music. His chamber music output included 3 string quartets, a string quintet, a piano quintet, 4 piano trios (from which this sextet was arranged), 2 violin sonatas, a cello sonata and an octet (First Edition published by Rosewood as RP 76) which was later enlarged to his nonet (RFE 70) and which has also been arranged by John Wilcox as a septet (RP 105).
