Broch received his early training in Moravia, then advanced training at the Conservatory in Vienna. After an important position as professor of Violin for the Musikverein in Lemberg (now Lviv, Ukraine), and concert tours in the East, he became orchestra director at the Theater an der Wien, a position which he held until his death in 1864.
