Hilda Sehested was one of the few women in Danish Romantic music. She came from a prosperous family, and as a young woman studied the piano in Paris and with C.F.E. Horneman in Copenhagen.

She held administrative posts in the musical life of Copenhagen, but several of her often original works were never performed.
