Josef Roeger was born on 13 September 1890 in Limbach (Germany) and was the only child of the famous violinist Marie Soldat-Roeger (1863-1955). He went to school in Melk and later studied classical philology in Tübingen and piano with Angelo Kessissoglu in Stuttgart. He then worked for the Styrian provincial government. In the 1920s Josef Roeger studied composition with Leopold Suchsland and Robert Fuchs in Vienna. Josef Roeger died around 1970.
In my possession is the autograph manuscript of the String quartet op.22 which was composed in 1931. The work is dedicated to a "quartet in Wales" at the end of the score.
The sound snippet below is a computer realisation of the end of the quartet.
