Franz Behr

July 22, 1837 - February 15, 1898
Franz Behr is a largely forgotten, although prolific, German composer. He wrote many vocal works as well as salon pieces for piano. He is perhaps best known today as the composer of Lachtäubchen, Scherzpolka in F Major, Op. 303, a work that formed the basis of the famous Polka de W.R by Sergei Rachmaninoff.
