Hans Richter was an Austro-Hungarian conductor. Trained at the Vienna Conservatory, he was a versatile musician but emphasized conducting.

He had a particular fondness for Wagner, and about one-third of the more than two thousand operas he conducted were Wagner's. He also introduced numerous European composers to English audiences.
