History

Hans von Bülow, conductor and pianist, was born in Dresden, Germany on 8 January 1830. He studied both music and law, the latter in Leipzig. In 1851 he gave up law and went to Weimar to study piano under Franz Liszt (1811-1866). He married Liszt's daughter Cosima in 1857. Von Bülow toured as a pianist and also taught at the Stern and Marx conservatories in Berlin. In 1864 he became the conductor of the Court Opera in Munich, followed in 1867 by his appointment as director of the music conservatory there. From 1850-1855 he was Hoftmusikdirektor to the Duke of Meiningen. Von Bülow also composed some piano works and orchestral music. He died in Cairo on 12 February 1894.
