August Conradi (27 June 1821 – 26 May 1873) was a German organist and composer. Born in Berlin, he was originally intended by his father to study theology. Instead, he was enrolled at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin. There he studied harmony and composition with Carl Friedrich Rungenhagen, director of the Sing-Akademie zu Berlin. In 1843, he became a church organist of Invalidenhaus, Berlin, also writing his first symphony plus a Zigeunerpolka for orchestra the same year. The latter was arranged for piano by Hungarian pianist and composer Franz Liszt. Conradi held various conducting appointments; these included Stettin (1849), Berlin (1850), Düsseldorf (1852), and Cologne (1853), then Berlin again at such theaters as Kroll's, the Wallner-Theater and the Victoria-Theater.

  • August Eduard Moritz Conradi (Berlim, 27 de Junho de 1821 - 26 de Maio de 1873) foi um compositor, organista e Kapellmeister (mestre de capela) alemão. Conradi era, pelo menos desde 1840, aluno de August Wilhelm Bach (em composição, órgão e piano) e de Carl Friedrich Rungenhagen (contraponto e baixo). Aluno estudioso, distinguiu-se em várias ocasiões entre 1840 e 1842. Em 1843, obteve o posto de organista da igreja da Câmara dos Inválidos (Invalidenhaus) de Berlim. Durante os anos que se seguiram, uma colaboração esporádica com Franz Liszt, que tinha começado em 1844 com a primeira estadia em Weimar, ocorreu sem muito sucesso. Os dois músicos tinham talvez já sido conhecidos em Berlim, em 1841 ou 1842. Nessa altura, Conradi já ganhara uma valiosa experiência em instrumentação, e Liszt, portanto, foi por ele ajudado a alcançar as suas primeiras obras orquestrais. Esta colaboração continuaria, apesar de várias interrupções, até 1849. Em 1847, Liszt ainda está em mãos com uma polka cigana de Conradi. Este consegue um contrato como Kapellmeister no Thalia-Theater e cede lugar a Joachim Raff. Em 1849, Conradi colaborou com o dramaturgo David Kalisch, um mestre do teatro cómico em Berlim, no Friedrich-Wilhelmstädtischen Theater. Esta etapa é extremamente frutífera para o trabalho do compositor Conradi. Posteriormente, eles elaboram várias cenas novas: o Teatro Königsstädtische (Berlim, Fevereiro de 1851), a ópera em Düsseldorf (Julho de 1851), a futura Kroll-Oper (Berlim, 1852) e o Teatro Municipal de Colónia (1852-1853). Por fim, Conradi regressa a Berlim, primeiro com a futura Kroll-Oper, depois ao Wallner-Theater, onde finalmente consegue um lugar de longo prazo como Kapellmeister. Em 1864, sucedeu como mestre de coro do Teatro Vitória (inaugurado em 1859) a Josef Nesvadba, que é chamado a Darmstadt. Até ao final de sua vida, Conradi é visto tanto musical como humanamente como uma pessoa ativa e de pouco descanso. Além de seu sucesso como compositor de teatro, as danças, marchas, medleys e canções compostas para os salões burgueses de Berlim, trouxeram-lhe uma fortuna considerável. Após a morte de sua viúva, foi uma associação de asilo, em Berlim, que herdou o seu dinheiro. (pt)

Conradi probably met Liszt in the early 1840s. He served as Liszt's copyist in Weimar in January and February 1844, and he spent 18 months there in 1848 and 1849 at Liszt's instigation. Conradi prepared copies of the initial versions of Liszt's orchestral works, making suggestions on scoring. He also assisted Liszt in assembling a "Programme general" of all the repertory he had played during his virtuoso years. While Conradi was an extremely hard worker, he also possessed a somewhat routine mind. When he received his appointment as Kapellmeister in Stettin in the winter of 1849, his work at Weimar was taken over by the more imaginative Joachim Raff. Nevertheless, Liszt continued to use him as a copyist. In September, 1855 Liszt wrote of his intention to send the score of his Psalm 13 to Berlin so that Conradi could make a fair copy for the first performance there. The extent of Conradi's help with Liszt's early orchestration has been well documented by Liszt scholar Peter Raabe, who demonstrated that, whatever the position regarding initial drafts, the final versions were always Liszt's own. Conradi wrote eight operas, a ballet, five symphonies, overtures, and string quartets as well as dance music, songs, vaudeville sketches, farces and potpourris (which were performed in garden concerts for many years).
