Jan Gall

Jan Karol Gall (August 18, 1856 – October 30, 1912) was a Polish vocal composer and music teacher.

In 1880, he became conductor of the Galician Music Society in Lemberg (modern-day Lviv, Ukraine); in 1886, professor of singing at the Kraków Conservatory; and from 1892, conductor of a choral society, "Echo", in Lwów [Lemberg].
