Friedrich Silcher

German song composer Friedrich Silcher (1789-1860).
Silcher was meant to be a school teacher, but dedicated himself entirely to music in the seminary in Ludwigsburg after he met Carl Maria von Weber. He was taught composition and piano by C. Kreutzer and Johann Nepomuk Hummel. In 1817 was named musical director at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen. He is regarded one of the most important protagonists of choir singing. He arranged many German and international folk songs, that even today remain standard repertoire of many choirs in Germany and became an integral part of German daily life. In 1829 Silcher founded the "Akademische Liedertafel" in Tübingen and directed it until his death.
