HERMAN SANDBY  

(1881 - 1965)

The Danish cellist and composer Herman Sandby (1881–1965) was one of Grainger’s fellow students in Frankfurt and became his close friend for life. They performed often as a duo, usually with a repertoire arranged for them by Grainger. They also researched Scandinavian folk music together. In 1906 the two played Grieg’s Cello Sonata for the composer in London. Afterwards Grieg wrote ‘excellent from beginning to end’ in his diary.
