Hans Christian Lumbye


Hans Christian Lumbye (May 2, 1810 – March 20, 1874) was a Danish composer of waltzes, polkas, mazurkas and galops (amongst other things). As a child, he studied music in Randers and Odense, and by age 14 he was playing trumpet in a military band. In 1829 he joined the Horse Guards in Copenhagen, still continuing his music education. In 1839, he heard a Viennese orchestra play music by Johann Strauss I, after which he composed in the style of Strauss, eventually earning the nickname "The Strauss of the North".

Hans Christian Lumbye (May 2, 1810 – March 20, 1874) was a Danish composer of waltzes, polkas, mazurkas and galops (amongst other things). As a child, he studied music in Randers and Odense, and by age 14 he was playing trumpet in a military band. In 1829 he joined the Horse Guards in Copenhagen, still continuing his music education. In 1839, he heard a Viennese orchestra play music by Johann Strauss I, after which he composed in the style of Strauss, eventually earning the nickname "The Strauss of the North". From 1843 to 1872, he served as the music director and in-house composer for Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen.

Such was his popularity in the Danish capital that many Danes revered him and considered Johann Strauss II as the "Lumbye of the South". Lumbye is best known for his light compositions, many of which evoke non-musical sources. The Champagne Galop, for example, begins with the "POP" of a champagne cork, and the Copenhagen Steam Railway Galop faithfully recreates the sounds of a train chugging out of a station and grinding to a halt at the next stop. He was the father of two musician sons, Carl Christian (July 9, 1841 - August 10, 1911) and Georg August (August 26, 1843 - 1922), who took over his orchestra after his death. Read more on Last.fm.
