A. Zangl
August Zangl (08/02/1865 - 21/08/1912) was an Austrian teacher and composer. As the son of the town parish organist and choral director of Bruneck, and nephew of the more well-known Josef Greor Zangl, he received his first musical instruction from his father and his uncle. After finishing his teacher training in Innsbruck (1884) he became a teacher and organist in Taisten, Helfenberg, Pinsdorf and finally in Vorchdorf (after 1900), where he founded a men's glee club and a theater for dilettantes and stood out as a prolific composer and social reformer. As a composer he seems to have followed not so much the more demanding ideas of his uncle but more the style of the elegantly practical southern Tyrolean F. Schöpf the Younger.
