    Fredrik Vilhelm Ludvig Norman was born in Stockholm on 28 August 1831 and died there on 28 March 1885. After studying piano for Vilhelmina Josephson, Theodor Stein and Jan van Boom, and music theory for Adolf Fredrik Lindblad, he continued his education in Leipzig in 1848−52 for, amongst other teachers, Julius Rietz (composition) and Ignaz Moscheles (piano). Back in Stockholm he worked as a composer, conductor, pianist and critic. From 1861 to 1865 he was chief conductor at the Royal Opera. Under his direction, the opera productions maintained a high standard. With his advanced compositional technique and assured sense of form, Norman was one of the most important composers of symphonies and chamber music of his time. He was made a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in 1857.
