Abstract [sv]

Johan August Söderman föddes i Stockholm 17 juli 1832. Som tonåring fick han utbildning i harmonilära och piano vid Kungl. Musikaliska akademien. Praktisk erfarenhet erhöll han som kapellmästare vid resande teatersällskap under 1850-talet och senare som kormästare och biträdande kapellmästare vid Kungliga Teatern från 1860 fram till sin död, 10 februari 1876. Som kapellmästare vid teatern komponerade han en mängd stycken för teaterpjäser, men han skrev också vokala verk som solo- och körballader samt sånger. Dessa blev mycket uppskattade och inte minst kopplingen till det som uppfattades som folkton framhölls. Söderman var en uppskattad tonsättare i Stockholm vid 1800-talets mitt. Trots den korta levnadstiden är hans produktion omfattande och många verk framförs än idag. August Söderman invaldes den 24 februari 1865 i Kungl. Musikaliska akademien som ledamot nr 405.

Abstract [en]

Johan August Söderman, born in Stockholm 17 July 1832. Studied harmony and piano at the Royal Swedish Academy of Music as a teenager. Acquired practical experience as music director for a travelling theatre company in the 1850s and later as choirmaster and second conductor of the Royal Opera from 1860 until his death on 10 February 1876. In his capacity as music director for the theatre he composed a great deal of incidental music for plays, as well as vocal works, such as solo and choral ballads and songs. These pieces proved very popular, especially on account of their purportedly folk–music influences. Söderman was a much lauded composer in Stockholm in the mid–19th century, and despite his short life, his output was considerable and many of his works are still performed to this day.
