Bernhard Scholz Allemagne Bernhard E. Scholz, (30 March 1835 – 26 December 1916) was a German conductor, composer and teacher of music. Bernhard Scholz was born in Mainz in 1835. He was intended by his father to take over his father's business (Lithographische Druckerei und Verlag Jos. Scholz) and studied to be a printer at Imp. Lemercier in Paris. But music became his career. He was a student of Ernst Pauer (piano) in Mainz, and 1855-56 of Siegfried Dehn (counterpoint) in Berlin. He also took voice lessons with Antonio Sangiovanni in Milan.
He first taught at the Munich Conservatory and was court Kapellmeister in Zürich, Nuremberg and 1859-65 in Hanover. Between 1865 and 1866 he was director of the Cherubini Society in Florence and also taught at the Stern Conservatory and the Kullak Conservatory. From 1871-83 he directed the Orchestra Society in Breslau. In 1883 he was appointed director of the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt, a post he held until 1908.
He died in Munich in 1916.
His Piano Concerto was championed by Clara Schumann, who included it in her repertory.
He was one of four signatories to an anti-'Music of the Future' (anti-New-Weimar-School) Manifesto published in the Berliner Musik-Zeitung Echo on 6 May 1860, along with Johannes Brahms (possibly its author), Joseph Joachim and Julius Otto Grimm.
