(1843 - 1923)

A pupil of Niels W. Gade and J.P.E. Hartmann, the Danish composer Asger Hamerik took lessons in conducting from Hans von Bülow in Berlin and studied with Berlioz in Paris. He spent some time in America, where he was respected as a conductor, returning eventually to spend his final years in Copenhagen.

Choral and Orchestral Music

Hamerik’s Symphony No. 7 ‘Choral’ was his last significant work, its various revisions eventually completed in 1906. The Requiem was completed in 1887. His orchestration shows the influence of Berlioz.
