Bargiel, a German composer and conductor, was the half-brother of Clara Wieck Schumann and brother-in-law of Robert Schumann. "As a composer Bargiel was rather an admirer, but not an epigone or imitator, of Schumann. His works were much performed during his lifetime. His pupils included Ernst Rudorff, Paul Juon, Leo Blech, Leopold Godowsky, Peter Raabe and Johannes Wolf. He served, partly in collaboration with Brahms, on the editorial boards of the first Schumann and Chopin editions, and his eight-volume edition of Bach's chorales Johann Sebastian Bach's vierstimmige Kirchengesänge (Berlin, 1891–3) was used well into the 20th century."
