Christian Sinding

a.k.a. Christian August Sinding

Author Code: NCAS

Born: Jan. 11, 1856 - Kongsberg, Norway

Died: Dec. 3, 1941 - Oslo, Norway

Educated in Christiana and the Leipzig Conservatory where he studied music under Salomon Jadassohn, Sinding developed his skills as a composer while at the latter. In 1885, he premiered his first major work, Piano Quintet in E Minor, Op. 5, and over the next few years his production won critical praise and he was called the natural successor to Edvard Grieg in his native Norway. Although he continued to reside in Germany, Sinding received a regular stipend from Norway. In 1920, he spent a few months in the USA teaching composition at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. He spent nearly 40 years in Germany returning to Norway only in 1921 where he was given Henrik Wegeland's former home by the Norwegian government. Today, Sinding is perhaps best remembered for his piano piece Fruhlingrauchen (Rustle of Spring), a favorite of pianists. Towards the end of his life he was enticed to join the Norwegian Nazi party - only a few weeks before his death. This left a cloud over his name in Norway and goes some way in explaining why his music is not as popular as it should be. He produced four symphonies, three violin concertos, a piano concerto and numerous piano pieces, songs and chamber music. In 1938, he was awarded the Grand Cross of the Order of St. Olav.
