Adolf Jensen


German pianist, composer and music teacher, who wrote about 160 songs, and music for choir. His music for piano includes a Sonata in F sharp minor (Op. 25), a set of 25 Études (Op. 32), and Erotikon, Op. 44, seven pieces depicting scenes from Greek legends. He also wrote music for piano four hands.

His orchestral music consisted of a Concert Overture in E minor and a Geistliches Tonstück. He started work on opera Die Erbin von Montfort in 1864-65, but never finished it. After his death, Wilhelm Kienzl adapted the music to a new libretto, Turandot, written by Jensen's daughter Elsbeth, who wrote under the pseudonym "Egbert Jensen".

He was the brother of Gustav Jensen (1843–1895) who was a violinist and composer. He died in Baden-Baden of tuberculosis on 23 January 1879 when he was 42.

Sy Scholfield quotes from Musikstadt Königsberg: Geschichte und Erinnerung by Erwin Kroll (Atlantis, 1966), p. 204: "Wo stand Jensens Geburtshaus? Nachforschungen, die ich mit Unterstützung von Frau Else Seitz unternahm, ergaben, daß es das Haus Altstädtischer Markt Nr. 1 (nach alter Zählung) war. Laut Taufregister heißen Jensens Vornamen: Johann, Karl, Wilhelm, Adolf, seine Geburtsstunde ist 8 Uhr vormittags des 12. Januars 1837."

(Where was Jensen's birthplace? Investigations, which I undertook with the support of Mrs. Else Seitz, showed that it was the house of Old Town Market No. 1 (by old counting). According to baptismal registers, Jensen's first names are Johann, Karl, Wilhelm, Adolf, his birth is 8 o'clock in the morning of 12 January 1837).
