Biography

Active: 1890s-1920s
Country Of origin: Norway

As a Norwegian composer and heir to Grieg, Sinding initially studied the violin a the University of Leipzig. His talent for composition, however, soon became apparent and he stopped studying the violin. His techniques, harmonies and style betray the influence of both Wagner and Liszt. Compositions declare fully embodied harmonies with quick and sometimes disconcerting modulations. Sinding's progressions were, nevertheless, usually well-structured with a penchant for smooth chromatics. Stylistically his music was both aggressive and strong. Sinding is only second to Grieg in the context of Norwegian Romantic composers. Among his lasting contributions to the repertory are "The Rustle of Spring," lyric piano compositions including the "Piano Concerto in C-sharp Minor," and over two hundred and fifty songs including his "Symra" collection. ~ Keith Johnson~ Rovi
