Napoléon Henri Reber
Napoléon Henri Reber (1807–1880) – French composer and teacher, trained at the Paris Conservatory (he studied harmony with Anton Reicha and composition with Jean-François Le Sueur). Reber became famous for his handbook Traité d’harmonie, first published in 1862 and reissued many times.
In Paris, Reber belonged to the circle of Fryderyk Chopin. While Thomas Tellefsen was taking piano lessons from the Polish composer, he was studying composition with Reber, who is likely to have passed on to his pupil a liking for chamber music and classical style.
