February 19, Elfrida Andrée (1841-1929)

Since July, I have been concentrating solely on female composers.  You can read about that in my post from July 19.  If I can’t find one born on the calendar day, I may not post.  On with today’s composer.

Elfrida Andrée (19 February 1841 – 11 January 1929), was a Swedish organist, composer, and conductor.  I only came across her music today, and I must say it is quite a nice surprise.  There’s not much about her on the English speaking websites, so this is about all I could find:  She and her sister, who became a famous opera singer, were both educated by their father.  Elfrida was active in the women’s suffragette movement in Sweden.
