Peter Arnold Heise (Composer)

Born: 11th February 1830, Copenhagen, Denmark

Died: 12th September 1879, Taarbaek, Denmark

Nationality: Danish

Peter Heise was a Danish composer, best known for the opera Drot og Marsk (King and Marshal).

Heise's parents tried to press him into becoming a lawyer, but he scored highly in music at school, so he changed direction. He began writing songs at the age of 19. As a young man he collected several hundred folk songs directly from ordinary people. He used these tunes in Tornerose (Sleeping Beauty) and Bergliot (A Danish historical romance).
