Classical composer from the story "The Man Who Played the Oboe!" in the Anglo-American comic book Grand Slam Three Aces Comics
#47 (October 1945). He composed a Fantasia for the Oboe
so difficult to play, it has only been attempted twice in the U.S. in 15 years. The first was Ferdinand Cochini
, 15 years ago (so, 1930). The second, Alberti
, was murdered by Cochini after completing it. Hero Dr. Destine and his sidekick Rugged solve the case.
The piece climaxes with a lot of crashing cymbals and kettle drums, which hid the noise of the gunshot that killed Alberti.
Cochini made a popular recording of the piece. Alberti was planning on recording it also, but was murdered before he could do it.
Heigel's first name is never given.
