Danish composer and conductor Niles Gade was famous for conducting concerts of “Gewandhaus orchestra” in Leipzig (where he met Mendelssohn and Schumann). After returning to Copenhagen (1848) he became the leader of the Music Association chorus and orchestra and since 1867 the head of the Academy of Music that was established in Copenhagen. His compositions (8 symphonies, ouvertures, suits, chamber music, opera, ballet, cantatas, etc.) are essentially romantic. Gade’s music is influenced by Mendelssohn’s style and by the spirit of Danish national music.
