Christian Sinding

Christian Sinding (1856–1941), a Norwegian composer of Europe-wide renown, a generation younger than Grieg, spent most of his life in Germany, in the years 1920-1921 he lectured composition in Eastman School of Music in Rochester (USA). He did not lose touch with the country, he also received the governmental artistic scholarship, and later – the artist fee. Hist first long-term address after coming back to Norway was the “Grotto” built by the government in 1924, where lived until his death. A close friend of Nordahl Grieg, a poet, aviator and patriot. Very popular during his lifetime, two years before his death he joined Nasjonal Samling (although there are some doubts whether his decision was conscious, as he was already suffering from dementia), which resulted in his disappearance after the war from the concert halls (like Hamsun’s from the bookshops and libraries) after which he fell into oblivion.
