His ambition to consider lessons from Robert Schumann was under no circumstances fulfilled due to Schumann’s loss of life. He was a instructor of advanced piano from 1866 until 1868 at Carl Tausig’s Schule des höherin Clavierspiels. He was created into a category of musicians. His girl Elsbeth completed his final structure, an opera, under a pseudonym, Egbert Jensen. He was a modern of Richard Wagner’s.
