Max Herre was born in 1888 and studied musicology in Munich under Adolf Sandberger. In 1924 he graduated with his doctoral thesis about the operas of Franz Danzi. After his studies Max Herre became the first head of the music library of the conservatory in Augsburg. There he worked for several decades. Max Herre died in 1956.
Beside his work as a librarian Max Herre also published several articles and books about the musical life in Augsburg as well as he composed music. Among his compositions are songs, chamber music and also a large cantata for soprano, strings and piano.
In my possession are the autograph manuscripts of the "Impromptu in F-sharp minor for violin and piano (or organ)" and the "Fantasie, for violin, cello and piano op.2". Both works were composed in 1923 and again both works are dedicated to E. Sailer.
