Swedish composer Adolf Fredrik Lindblad (1801-1878).
Mainly remembered for his songs.
Lindblad composed one opera, Frondörerna (The rebels), two symphonies, in C and D major, and chamber music including two string quintets, three violin sonatas and seven string quartets. The main source of his popularity during his lifetime was the more than two hundred songs he composed. The mentor, and would-be lover, of Jenny Lind, "The Swedish Nightengale," Lindblad's affection for Lind was so obvious that his wife, Sophie, offered to divorce him so that he could marry her. He did not.
