    Jakob (Jacob) Adolf Hägg, b. Östergarn, Gotland, 26 (alt. 27) June 1850, was one of the foremost exponents of Swedish Leipzig romanticism and bequeathed a copious output of mainly piano music. He studied at the Royal Conservatory of Music, Stockholm, between 1865 and 1870, and under Niels W. Gade in Copenhagen (1870−71). For a long time Hägg was cut off from professional music by mental illness, but at the age of 45 he achieved a comeback as musician and composer. He died in Hudiksvall on 1 March 1928. Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music 1917.
