About the video
- Published online 29 August 2023.
- The video is approximately 4 minutes.
- A musical excerpt from the series Mankind and Music, episode 2.
Laura Netzel was born in Finland, but grew up in Stockholm. She studied in Paris under composer and organ master Charles-Marie Widor and her Romantic music garnered attention mainly in nineteenth-century France, and elsewhere in Europe.
At the time, it was difficult for women to claim the title of composer, and so initially, her Six Morceaux and many other works were published under the pseudonym N. Lago. Her true identity was revealed in 1891 in an article in the magazine Idun, which featured her as a Swedish pioneer of music.
This excerpt of music is from episode 2 of the series Mankind and Music. The five episodes are available to watch here on Konserthuset Play. Why does music exist? What happens to us when we make or listen to music? In this series, we explore answers to these questions together with musicians, listeners and researchers.
