Transcript of Friedrich Daniel Rudolf Kuhlau

Friedrich Daniel Rudolf Kuhlau

Friedrich Daniel Kuhlau was born near Hanover, Germany, on the 11th of September, 1876 to a poor family. His father, grandfather and uncle had all been military oboists. He studied piano at Hamburg, and his parents managed to pay for piano lessons. He made his debut as a pianist in Hamburg in 1804. At the age of 7 he lost his right eye in a street accident. During conscription for the Napoleon army in 1810, he fled to Copenhagen to avoid it. In 1813 he became a Danish citizen until his death on the 12 of March, 1832.
Friedrich was a German born Danish composer during the Classical and Romantic periods. He was immortalized in Danish cultural history through his music for Elves' Hill. He's known primarily as a concert pianist and a composer of Danish opera. He's responsible for introducing many of Beethoven's works; whom he greatly admired, to Copenhagen audiences. In 1832 his house burned down, which destroyed all of his unpublished manuscripts, but he had more than 200 published works in most genres.
What's so different about Friedrich D R Kuhlau?
Kuhlau wrote many pieces for piano and flute, also
chamber music, and operas. He is often referred to as the Beethoven of the flute, but most people only know him as the composer of small and easy sonatinas, if at all. He wrote grand piano sonatinas similar to Beethoven's in style, length and difficulty. Most of his piano pieces involved two hands, but he did write a few meant to be played with four hands.
Genres in which Friedrich Kuhlau wrote his music:
Vocal music, chamber music, orchestral, classical,
concerto, choral, keyboard, and opera.
Sonatina in C, Op. 20 No. 1
Capriccio No. 1 for flute
