The year after his debut, Emil Hartmann went on a study trip to Germany, and he continued to divide his activities between Germany and Denmark. In Germany he experienced great success as a result of his great ambitions and his frequent concert tours to conduct his own works, but in his native Denmark, Emil Hartmann was often pigeon-holed as “his father’s son and Niels W.

For the concert halls, he composed both choral works and symphonies as well as chamber music and piano works. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
