Nils-Eric Fougstedt (1910-1961) was an unusually versatile and energetic musician. After studies at the Helsinki Conservatory (now the Sibelius Academy) he embarked on a career as a conductor and composer. In 1934 he attended a conducting course in Salzburg at which Herbert von Karajan was one of the teachers; subsequently Fougstedt studied composition with Felice Boghen in Florence. In 1938 he was a composition pupil of Max Trapp in Berlin. Fougstedt's songs for mixed choir seem to show that, in this genre, he retreated to a sort of 'jardin secret', to a lyrical atmosphere full of beauty and radiant sonor ities (he was famous for preferring a clear and light choral tone). He mostly set texts by Swedish-speaking Finnish poets, but he also felt a spiritual affinity with Nils Ferlin who was based in Sweden. In general Fougstedt paid great attention to the choice of texts; his compositions convey the poems' expression with the help of carefully considered declamation.
