Richard Wetz
1875 - 1935
R. Wetz
Richard Wetz (26/02/1875 - 16/01/1935), a German conductor, composer and teacher (e.g. of Werner Trenkner). He was born in Gleiwitz, Upper Silesia and briefly attended the Leipzig Conservatory. After studying with Richard Hofmann and, in Munich, with Ludwig Thuille, he was recommended for a theatre conductor's post in Stralsund by Felix Weingartner. Shortly thereafter, Wetz returned to Leipzig where he was introduced to the music of Anton Bruckner. In 1906, Wetz was named Director of the Erfurt Music Society. Erfurt is a small city located about thirty miles to the west of Weimar and it became Wetz's base for the rest of his life. Here he could compose without being influenced by the trends of the day. He wrote at least two symphonies and a requiem.
