Friedrich Kuhlau, composer
About The German born composer Friederich Kuhlau is one of the main figures in early Danish Romaticism. Kuhlau's particular importance lies in the international impulses he brought to Danish music. His cosmopolitan though by no means impersonal style reflects the influence of Mozart and Beethoven.
