Friedrich Kuhlau
Birth: Sep. 11, 1786
Lower Saxony (Niedersachsen), Germany
Death: Mar. 12, 1832
Syddanmark, Denmark

Composer. He came to Denmark in 1810. Here he became one of the most important composers of the early 19th century. He made his name in 1814 at The Royal Theatre in Copenhagen through his ballad opera "Røverborgen". His music to the play "Elverhøj" from 1828 is his most famous work, particularly the ouverture and the closing royal hymn. Besides his dramatic works he composed several compositions for the flute and a large number of works and pieces for the piano. Particularly the short piano pieces (sonatinas) were immediately widely known, both in Denmark and abroad, and many generations have learnt to play the piano from his music. (bio by: Erik Skytte)
