Clemens von Franckenstein (1875-1942), German composer and conductor. „In 1912 he became the last Hofintendant at the Munich Opera, where he introduced Bruno Walter as Generalmusikdirektor and arranged for first performances of operas by von Klenau, Korngold, Braunfels, Courvoisier, Graener and Pfitzner. Rendered inactive during the Räterrepublik, Franckenstein resumed his responsibilities, now as Bayerischer Staatsintendant, in 1924; he was compulsorily pensioned in 1934 as a result of his disapproval of Nazi cultural policy and propaganda.” (Andrew D. McCredie in New Grove Online)
