Moritz (Maurice, Maurycy) Moszkowski (23 August 1854 – 4 March 1925) was a German-Jewish composer, pianist and teacher of Polish descent on his paternal side only. His brother Alexander Moszkowski was a famous writer and satirist in Berlin.
Moszkowski belongs to the Schumann school and indulges at times in abstruse and morbid harmonies. But these give an individuality of color that is quite alluring on closer acquaintance. Ignacy Paderewski said: “After Chopin, Moszkowski best understands how to write for the piano, and his writing embraces the whole gamut of piano technique.” Although little known today, Moszkowski was well respected and popular during the late nineteenth century.
