Riemann was born at Grossmehlra, near Sondershausen. He was educated in law and other subjects at Berlin and Tübingen. After going through the Franco-German war he decided to devote his life to music, and studied accordingly at the Leipzig Convervatory. He then went to Bielefeld for some years as a teacher, but subsequently returned to Leipzig as "Privatdozent" at the University. Riemann went to Bromberg in 1880, but 1881-90 he was a teacher of piano and theory at Hamburg Conservatory. He held a post at Wiesbaden (1890-95), but eventually returned to Leipzig University as lecturer. In 1901 he was appointed professor. In addition to his work as a teacher, lecturer and composer of pedagogical pieces, Dr. Riemann has made for himself a world-wide reputation as a writer upon musical subjects. His best known works are the famous Musiklexikon, a complete dictionary of music and musicians, the Handbuch der Harmonielehre, a work on the study of harmony, and the Lehrbuch des Contrapunkts, a similar work on counterpoint, all of which have been translated into English. He has written many other works which indicate an encyclopaedic knowledge of music in all its branches. He is held in the highest possible esteem by German musical authorities.
