Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alfred Francis Hill CMG OBE (16 December 1869 - 30 October 1960) was an Australian/New Zealand composer, conductor and teacher. Alfred Hill was born in Melbourne in 1869. His year of birth is shown in many sources as 1870, but this has now been disproven. He spent most of his early life in New Zealand. He studied at the Leipzig Conservatory between 1887 and 1891 under Gustav Schreck, Hans Sitt and Oscar Paul. Later he played second violin with the Gewandhaus Orchestra, under the conductorship of names such as Brahms, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, Bruch, and Reinecke. While there, some of his compositions were played with fellow students, and several were published in Germany.
