Franz von Bruchmann
Franz von Bruchmann1798 - 1867
Franz Joseph von Bruchmann was the son of Johann Christian Maria von Bruchmann, director of the Vienna National Bank, one of the richest men in Vienna and patron of Franz Schubert and the artist Leopold Kupelwieser. In his Vienna home Johann Christian hosted the so-called Schubertiaden, musical and literary evenings with Schubert at their centre.
Franz Joseph graduated in Law in 1827 and joined the Austrian civil service. Following the untimely death of his wife Juliana in 1830 , he went to Rome and entered the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer, and was ordained in Graz in 1833. In 1841 he founded the Redemptorist mission in Upper Bavaria. He later became the Provincial of the Austrian and German congregations.
Schubert set five of Franz Joseph’s poems to music: Am Zee (D746), An die Leier (D737), Der Zürnende Barde (D785), Im Haine (D738), and Schewstergruss (D763)
