Artist bio


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".
