Victor Herbert

Victor August Herbert (1. februar 1859 – 26. maj 1924) bio je američki kompozitor, violončelist i dirigent rodom iz Irske i obrazovan u Njemačkoj. Iako u svoje vrijeme poznat kao jedan od najvažnijih violončelista i dirirgenata, danas ga se najviše pamti po nizu popularnih opereta koje su premijerno prikazane na Broadwayu od 1890-ih do prvog svjetskog rata. Također je bio jedan od najpoznatijih kompozitora Tin Pan Alleya te osnivač Američkog društva kompozitora, autora i izdavača (ASCAP). Herbert je imao plodan opus - dvije opere, kantatu, 43 operete, scensku muziku za 10 kazališnih komada, 31 kompoziciju za orkestar, devet kompozicija za manji sastava, devet kompozicija za violončelo, pet kompozicija za klavir, violinu i orekstar, 22 kompozicije za klavir i brojne pjesme, zborske kompozicije i aranžmane drugih kompozitora.
