Johan Severin Svendsen

In the New Grove, his middle name is given in bold, in brackets. So you can drop it if you feel the need for brevity, but it’s not actually displayed as optional, so I’m retaining all of it. He was born in what is now Norway (in Christiana, now Oslo) in 1840, and is listed accordingly in New Grove as ‘Norwegian’. However, he died in Copenhagen (Denmark) and ended up living much of his life there, from 1883 until his death in 1911. His later-life reputation was mostly as a conductor, and his compositions after 1883 are few and relatively minor.
