CARL JONAS LOVE ALMQVIST  

(1793 - 1866)

Known as both a writer and a composer, Carl Jonas Love Almqvist was born in Stockholm. He held innovative social views and was in 1841 compelled to resign his position as a clergyman, assumed four years earlier. In 1851 he was accused of murder, which forced him to flee the country; he took refuge in America and then in Germany. He died in Bremen in 1866. Self-taught as a composer, Almqvist wrote settings of his own texts and a series of piano pieces that reflect his particular views on music.
