Abstract [sv]

Bror Beckman, född 10 februari 1866 i Kristinehamn och avliden 22 juli 1929 i Ljungskile. Han anställdes 1884 i Julius Bagges musikhandel i Stockholm och inledde även studier i harmonilära för denne. Åren 1885−90 var han privatelev i kontrapunkt och komposition för Johan Lindegren. Han blev 1888 tjänsteman i försäkringsbolaget Fylgia, en position som han innehade i drygt 20 år parallellt med musikstudier, undervisning och senare komponerande. När han 1909 anställdes som kamrer vid Kungl. Musikaliska akademien och följande år utsågs till rektor för musikkonservatoriet (med professors titel från 1911) avbröts i praktiken hans karriär som tonsättare.

Abstract [en]

Bror Beckman, b. 10 February 1866 in Kristinehamn, d. 22 July 1929 in Ljungskile. In 1884 he began working in Julius Bagge's music store in Stockholm and studying harmony under Bagge's tuition. Between 1885−90 he studied counterpoint and composition privately under Johan Lindegren. In 1888 he became an insurance clerk with the Fylgia insurance company, a post which he retained for upwards of 20 years, conjointly with music studies, teaching and, later on, composing. His career as a composer was in practice curtailed by his appointment in 1909 as treasurer to the Royal Swedish Academy of Music and, the following year, principal of the Royal Conservatory of Music (as from 1911 with professorial standing).
