Friedrich Gumpert (1841-1906)

First Horn in the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and professor at the Leipzig Conservatory from 1864 to 1898. All of his publications give his name as "Gumbert" but the proper spelling of his name is Gumpert, as his actual signature and other documents show.

From his teaching studio came three students that later had a major influence in the American school of Horn playing: Anton Horner (First Horn Pittsburgh & Philadelphia orchestras), Max Hess (First Horn Cologne, Gürzenich, Boston & Cincinnati orchestras) and Max Pottag (member of Hamburg & Chicago orchestras).

His major publications include twelve volumes of orchestral excerpt books that are still available today, a horn method, and many arrangements for horn and piano.
