Eduard Brendler

Eduard Brendler (1800-1831) was a Swedish composer. He was born in Dresden, Germany but his family moved to Sweden when he was only a year old. He died before completing his romantic opera Ryno, or the errant knight ("Ryno eller den vandrande riddaren: skådespel med sång i tre akter"), to a libretto by Bernhard von Beskow, so the opera was completed by his friend and patron the Crown Prince Oscar I, and premiered in 1834.[1]
