Elegant orchestral suites, magnificent sacred works and informal chamber music composed by "the Father of Swedish Music".
Johan Helmich Roman (26 October 1694 – 20 November 1758)
was a Swedish Baroque composer. He has been called "the father of Swedish music" or "the Swedish Handel." In Swedish music history, the importance of Johan Helmich Roman cannot be overestimated. Being the first native Swedish composer of international importance, conductor of the royal orchestra, violinist and oboist, concert organizer, music teacher, theorist and linguist, he was the man who, through thirty years of hard work (1721–1751), laid the foundation of modern musical life in Sweden.
