Franz Berwald

The Swedish composer Franz Berwald was born (23 July 1796) and died (3 April 1868) in Stockholm. His training was mostly in Europe where his early operas were performed without success, a situation he found also on his return to Sweden. Today we remember him for chamber music and several symphonies.
