H.C. Lumbye


H. C. Lumbye was a composer and conductor. As a child he became a military musician, but soon he made himself a name as a composer and conductor of dance music. He was conductor at the Tivoli Concert Hall from its opening in 1843. Lumbye's music - on a par with the great Viennese composers Strauss and Lanner - is still unabatedly popular not only in Scandinavia, but also abroad where he is considered the 'Strauss of the North'. His works include stage music and ballets (in co-operation with Bournonville), about 700 dances, orchestral phantasies, and songs.
