Anton Urspruch’s work was heavily influenced by Liszt and Wagner. He was born in Frankfurt am Main on 17 February 1850 to parents who worked in the theatre. Having finished his schooling, he studied music with M. Wallenstein, Ignaz Lachner, Joachim Raff and, from 1871 onwards, with Franz Liszt in Weimar. Liszt called his favourite pupil “Antonio” and used to address him as “Dear and most excellent friend”.
