During his life he was also active as a composer and a musician but for this work he used the pseudonym Johann Hager. He received musical education in Vienna and later in 1845 in Leipzig, where Moritz Hauptmann and Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy were his teachers. Around 1858 his compositions were published under his own name. He wrote the operas "Iolante" and "Marffa" and the oratorium "Johannes der Täufer".
