Schrammel, Johann

Schrammel, Johann, Austrian violinist and composer; b. Neulerchenfeld, near Vienna, May 22, 1850; d. Vienna, June 17, 1893. He studied violin with Ernst Melzer before pursuing training at the Vienna Cons. (1862–66) with Heissler and Hellmesberger. After playing in the Harmonie and Josephstadt theater orchs. and in Margold’s salon orch. in Vienna, he founded the Schrammel Trio there in 1878, which became a quartet in 1886. Schrammel wrote many popular dances, marches, and songs. His march Wien bleibt Wien (1887) has remained a favorite in the Viennese repertory. His brother, Joseph Schrammel (b. Ottakring, near Vienna, March 3, 1852; d. Vienna, Nov. 24, 1895), was also a violinist and composer. After studies with Hellmesberger (1865–67), he played in his brother’s trio.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
