Svendsen, who died in 1911, was a violinist-conductor-composer, and wrote several large-scale compositions, including two Symphonies. He is less of a nationalist composer than his contemporary, Grieg. In such pieces as this Norwegian Artists' Carnival, however, the spirit of his native country is happily present. This, and the four Norwegian Rhapsodies by which he is well known, belong to his earlier years of residence in Christiania. He was the conductor of its Musical Association when he was in the mid-thirties. That was a time of small things for him. He had spent some years wandering over Europe, picking up a living in various musical occupations, and was glad to settle down at home (though he not infrequently undertook tours abroad during the rest of his life).

Waltz, Pot-pourri...Waldteufel
One is apt to associate Emil Waldteufel with Vienna, since he lived and composed his dance music in the days when the Viennese waltz was all-conquering. As a matter of fact, Waldteufel, although bom in 1837 in Strassburg, spent his whole life in Paris, and died there a little over twenty years ago. After studying at the Paris Conservatoire, he was for a time employed in a piano factory. Later, he was appointed pianist to the Empress Eugenie. He published his first waltzes at his own expense ; they were so successful that he decided to devote himself to the composition of dance music. He wrote several hundreds of waltzes and other dance tunes, and became one of the half-dozen most famous dance music composers of his day.
