Herbert Blomstedt (b1927)

Herbert Blomstedt was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1927 to Swedish parents, who returned to their home country in 1929. Having received his earliest musical training from his mother, a pianist, he studied at the Royal Music School in Stockholm between 1945 and 1950, specialising in conducting and church music, before going on between 1948 and 1952 to the University of Uppsala where his chosen subjects included psychology and religion as well as music. Between 1950 and 1955, Blomstedt attended the summer courses in conducting led by Igor Markevich at the Salzburg Mozarteum and also took part in the famous courses in contemporary music at Darmstadt, where he came into contact with John Cage. This experience was balanced by the study of Renaissance and Baroque performance practice at the Schola Cantorum in Basle. In 1953 he continued his conducting studies in the USA, with Jean Morel at the Juilliard School, and with Leonard Bernstein at Tanglewood, where he won the Koussevitzky Prize for conducting.
