Johan Hartmann
Birth: May 14, 1805
Death: Mar. 10, 1900

Composer. Full name: Johan Peter Emilius Hartmann. Organist at the Copenhagen Cathedral 1843-1900. Co-founder and director of the Royal Danish Academy of Music. All his life he worked with music for the theatre, and being a close friend of the poet Hans Christian Andersen (q.v.) he composed the music for the operas "Ravnen" (The Raven) and "Liden Kirsten" (Lille Kirsten) to Andersen's text as well as for some of Andersen's plays. Another close friend was the choreographer and ballet master August Bournonville (q.v.), and together they created five ballets for the Royal Danish Ballet. His vast musical production includes songs, hymns, choral works, orchestral works, chamber music and music for the organ and the piano. His music had influence on later Scandinavian composers such as Grieg and Carl Nielsen. (bio by: Erik Skytte)
