Raff, Joachim (1822-82), a composer of the Wagner school, was at first a schoolmaster, but rose to be director of the Frankfort Conservatoire of Music. A protege of Mendelssohn and a friend of Liszt, he was a prolific composer of symphonies, overtures, and concertos, his music for the violin being in especial repute.
