(1933 - 1970)

Bo Linde was born in Gävle, Sweden, in 1933. A gifted pianist and composer at very early age, his first music teachers, while he was still at school, were Eric Bengtsson and May Bökman. He wrote his first compositions in his early teens and later on Linde was acceped in Lars-Erik Larsson’s composition class at the State Academy of Music in Stockholm in 1948, when he was just fifteen. He studied conducting in Vienna in 1953-1954.  Besides his work as a composer, Bo Linde taught piano and composition in Stockholm as well as in Gävle. He also wrote many articles and reviews on musical topics in the local Gefle Dagblad. He died in 1970 in Gävle.

The translucence of his melodies and the liveliness and distinct contours of his pieces have made Bo Linde a highly respected and much loved composer. The violin concerto is perhaps the most regularly performed of Bo Linde's orchestral works and beyond the borders of Sweden it has been heard in the United States, Germany and Norway.
