Adolf Fredrik Lindblad (1801 - 1878)

Adolf Fredrik Lindblad was from the Swedish province of Östergötland. He learned to play the piano and flute, and at the age of fifteen had a flute concerto of his performed in Norrköping. Shortly after this, however, his well-intentioned foster-father sent him to learn a trade in Hamburg. On his return he divided his time between office work and piano lessons, but when he moved to Uppsala in spring 1823 he had decided to devote himself entirely to music. He received lessons in harmony for a year or so from one of Uppsala University’s director musices, J. C. F. Haeffner, but with Malla Silfverstolpe’s help he was able to spend a year in Berlin, where he studied composition with Zelter and struck up a warm friendship with Zelter’s star pupil, the seventeen-year-old Felix Mendelssohn.

Back in Sweden in 1827, Lindblad started a piano school in Stockholm, which he headed until 1861. For many years he was the favoured music-teacher to the Crown Prince, the future Oscar I, and later to the King’s musical children Prince Gustavus and Princess Eugenie, both of whom also composed.
