The Danish composer Emil Hartmann (1836-1898) has long been a modest parenthesis in Danish music history. As the son of one of Danish music's greatest personalities, the composer and organist J.P.E. Hartmann, he had a heavy family legacy to lift and had difficulties freeing himself from his father's legacy.
The chamber music is fully represented in Emil Hartmann's production. However, but much of the work is unknown to the public, and most of them have been almost forgotten in the Music Collection at The Royal Copenhagen Library.
Violinist Elisabeth Zeuthen Schneider is changing that now! For a number of years she has worked on editing, performing and recording Emil Hartmann's chamber music, and now it can be heard at both concerts and on a brand new album, released on Dacapo Records November 19th , 2019
