Franz Berwald

July 23, 1796 - April 3, 1868
born in Stockholm, Sweden, composed during the Romantic period
Born one year before Schubert and dying the same year as Rossini, Swedish composer Franz Berwald was a key figure in early romanticism. In his four symphonies, which are named rather than numbered, Berwald introduced "Nordic style" 50 years before it took hold in works of Sibelius and Nielsen. Ignored for most of his life, Berwald only gained recognition at the very end, making his living through odd jobs and a string of failed businesses. While only one of his operas, Estrella de Soria (1841), was successful, his orchestral overtures remain popular as does his early chamber work Grand Septet (1828). ~ Uncle Dave Lewis , Rovi

I agree. Thank you giving attention to this composer.

I'm surprised by the comment in the bio above, "Here would seem to be a rarity among creative artists, one to put the inner urge and ego on hold sublimating these in tending to the external needs of humankind." If the author of the bio believes that art is a matter of a selfish "inner urge and ego," and that art such as Berwald's is less valuable to humanity than tending (equally valuably) to its "external" needs, I wonder that he or she can be bothered writing about it.
.......just guessing.... . . t h e portrait above was made the day before he bought it with pneumonia... . . . B U T . . . . . . t h a n k - y o u pandora for giving this musician some attention... . . . . d a n g ! !
this guy rocks
Thanks for including Berwald in your selections. To me, he sounds somewhat Beethovenesq u e (a good thing, I should think). It's good to see the "forgotten" masters finally get some credit, albeit some 150 years later.
He is undeservedly a neglected composer. The excerpt demonstrates his skill. At times he sounds like Berlioz.
