The moustache, the collar, a very germanic appearence, maybe even a prussian one.

You'd be surprised to learn how close and yet how far you are from the truth.  :D (I guess this is a hint).

Prix de Rome? ? ? I suppose not, as I think it was only awarded to Frenchmen.

Not Prix de Rome. A prize sponsored by Le Figaro.

He was born under a monarch and died under a president. He went to study abroad and lived for many years in a city tremendously important for the history of music and other fine arts. He also held diplomatic offices. His music fell out of favor in his country with the advent of a more nationalistic generation.

There, I gave him away.  :D

Well, you didn't 'give him away' as far as I'm concerned!

A well-known and quite large thematic series of recordings features his work (and that of one of his fellow countrymen).

YT has a few of his works in full, including the one that won the aforementioned prize.

Travelling from his country to the city where he lived for many years required in those times more than one transportation mean.

That's it, folks, you have all the elements needed now.

I think it’s time for me to throw someone out there since I haven’t yet done so as I have no idea who Andrei’s composer is:

I confess to Google search...so I'll throw in a clue of my own.

Although they were not related in any way I know of, he shares his last name with a famous assasin and a minor character in Ivanhoe.

I was thinking I know that face, and then realized it was familiar because of a rather striking resemblance to Brad Pitt.

ETA
Asked Google...ah, that's what he looked like.
So my hint is this: almost everyone in GMG knows who he is. And it's not Brad Pitt.

Yes, this was Brad Pitt’s great, great, great grandfather, Sir Reginald Pitt. A British composer of marches and had a fetish for big-lipped women. ;)

Is he Sergei Taneyev?

Neither.  :D
Brazilan then.  Born when Dom Pedro II was emperor , died during the presidency of Getúlio Vargas. He lived in Florence, served as his country's consul in The Hague and Genoa, and won a competition organized by Le Figaro with  hus piano piece Il neige. His music is represented in Hyperion's "The Romantic Piano Concerto" series.

Henrique  Oswald:)

It's SymphonicAddict's turn, in any case...
