Louis Spohr (1784-1859) was a German composer, violinist and conductor. He is considered to be known as the "forgotton master" for once having been as famous as Beethoven. His influence was key in the development of German music drama with his greatest triumph in the oratorio. Considered on a par with Mozart, he was also so popular that even Gilbert and Sullivan mentioned him in the sam breath as Bach and Beethoven.
