(1806 - 1860)

Born in Copenhagen, of German descent, Frøhlich studied the violin and the flute and made his earlier career as a violinist, later serving as a conductor at the Royal Theatre. He wrote music for the ballets of Bournonville, in addition to a quantity of other instrumental music, much of it now lost.

Instrumental Music

Relatively little survives of the many works Frøhlich wrote for the flute, at a time when the instrument enjoyed considerable popularity in Denmark. His music, here as elsewhere, shows something of the influence of his older contemporary Kuhlau, a prolific composer for the instrument.
