Edouard Gregory Hesselberg
Early life and family
Hesselberg was born in Riga, Russian empire (now Latvia), the son of Sarah (Davidoff) and Heinrich Hesselberg. When he was three years old, the family moved to Oryol, where he studied at a classical gymnasium (1878-1886).
Hesselberg composed more than 100 piano pieces and songs during his career. He also wrote A review of music in Canada for a 1913 addition to a set of volumes called, Modern Music and Musicians (New York, Toronto 1912.) That particular work of his remains a valued source for that period.
He died 12 June 1935 in Los Angeles, California, US.
