The Brazilian composer and conductor Alberto Nepomuceno played an important role in the emergence of a national Brazilian musical style. From 1888 till 1895 he was in Europe. He studied composition in Berlin. After he married a Norwegian woman, he became friend with Grieg. He also lived in his house for a while. Later he also met Camille Saint-Saëns and Vincent d’Indy in Paris.
Back in Brazil he taught at the Institutio Nacional de Musica in Rio de Janeiro. In 1910 he was back in Europe for a series of concerts. Then he also met Debussy.
