Whilst studying in Leipzig, Ethel Smyth was able to move in the most influential musical circles through her friendship with the von Herzogenberg family and also the conductor George Henschel. These connections enabled Smyth to show her work to Brahms, and to become friends with Tchaikovsky, Grieg and Clara Schumann. She studied composition with Heinrich von Herzogenberg, who founded the Bach-Verein in 1874 and became its leader a year later.
