Preface (Oliver Fraenzke, April 2018 / Translation: Leesa Wheatley)
Emil Hartmann came from one of the most influential families of composers in Denmark: his great-grandfather Johan Hartmann (1726-1793) and his grandfather August Wilhelm Hartmann (1775-1850) were sought-after violinists, while his father Johan Peter Emilius Hartmann (1805-1900) was deemed a composer of international standing. J.P.E. Hartmann initially married Emma Zinn (1807-1851). Four years after her death, he married her friend Thora Jacobsen (1807-1889). He and Emma Zinn had nine children, six of whom lived into adulthood. Sophie Hartmann (1831-1855), the eldest daughter, married Niels Wilhelm Gade (1817-1890) who to this day is considered Denmark’s greatest symphonist. As Edvard Grieg’s (1843-1907) teacher, Gade had a profound influence on Grieg’s early works, especially on the symphonies and piano sonatas. Emil (1836-1898) and Carl Hartmann (1837-1901) were followed by Clara (1839-1925), who married August Winding (1839-1899), thus bringing another prominent name from the Danish music world into the family. Thereafter followed Emma Hartmann (1841-1914) and finally Frederik August (known as Frits) Hartmann (1843-1908).
