"After the death of his father in 1867 [Heinrich Berté] moved with his brother Emil to Vienna, studying with Hellmesberger, Fuchs and Bruckner at the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde Conservatory and becoming a fine pianist. After the success of his second ballet Die goldene Märchenwelt (Hofoper, 1893) he continued to compose for the stage, producing at least six ballets and a dozen operettas. His greatest success came with Das Dreimäderlhaus (Raimundtheater, 15 January 1916), an operetta using melodies by Schubert and based on a distorted version of his life. This became one of the greatest operetta successes of its time." Andrew Lamb in Grove Music Online.
