(1851 - 1926)

Victor Bendix was highly respected as a composer, pianist and conductor. He had one foot in the Danish Romantic tradition (he was a pupil of Gade and J.P.E. Hartmann), but also took an interest in the Late Romantic movement abroad. He studied with Liszt, whose ideas one can hear in Bendix' Piano Concerto, the most virtuoso concerto of Danish Romanticism. Bendix wrote four symphonies with an international orientation and they are among the best from the period between Gade and Carl Nielsen. Carl Nielsen in fact had great respect for Bendix, and dedicated his great Symphonic Suite for piano to him. Victor Bendix also wrote many songs, for example the well-loved Hvor tindrer nu min Stjerne (Oh how my star doth sparkle).
