Born 12 December 1887 in Gothenburg, Sweden, was Kurt Atterberg, a composer, writer and critic. His pen was busy in both aspects of the music profession. With six operas and nine symphonies, he also won a 2,000 pound prize for the last of his symphonies in the centenary year of Schubert's death in 1928. Atterberg died on 15 February 1974 in Stockholm.
