Bo Linde

Real Name:
Anders Bo Leif Linde
Profile:
(1 January 1933–2 October 1970) was a Swedish composer whose style resembled that of notable 20th century neoclassical composers like Benjamin Britten and Samuel Barber.
Born in Gävle, Linde studied music theory with Ingmar Bengtsson before enrolling at the Stockholm Academy of Music in 1948, where he studied composition with Lars-Erik Larsson and piano with Olof Wibergh. In 1953, one year after leaving the academy, he went to Vienna to study conducting and traveled around Europe before returning to Sweden. His most performed piece is probably his violin concerto.
Bo Linde committed suicide in Gävle, at the age of 37. - Wikipedia

The translucence of his melodies and the liveliness and distinct contours of his pieces have made Bo Linde a highly respected and much loved composer. His conscientious working approach was always aimed at achieving a solid but at the same time spontaneously accessible result.

Born in Gävle on 1st January 1933, died there on 2nd October 1970. His first music teachers, while he was still at school, were Eric Bengtsson and
May Bökman. Later on Linde came to study composition with Lars-Erik Larsson at the State Academy of Music in Stockholm in 1948. He studied conducting in Vienna in 1953-1954. He taught the theory of music at the Stockholm Citizens’ School 1957-1960 and subsequently worked mainly in Gävle as a composer, pianist and music reviewer for the Gefle Dagblad Newspaper.

A relaxed, fresh elegance was the leitmotiv of his approach to music, but this is not to say that his moods are invariably carefree. Quiet reflection and melancholy radiate from his mode of expression without ever going to the extreme of dismal gloom. This happiness at coming to terms with the potentialities of the musical craft invests his compositions with the dual character of inspiration and thorough knowledge. He composed in classically conceived forms with moderate thematic development, a conversation in the relationship between dignified melodies and other, more boisterously conceived phrases. - Gehrmans
