Johan Helmich Roman (1694-1758)

Johan Helmich Roman (born 26 October 1694 in Stockholm, died 20 November 1758 on the Haraldsmåla estate in Småland) is one of Sweden’s most important composers of all time. He has been called ‘the father of Swedish music’, and with good reason. As chief conductor of the Royal Court Orchestra, composer, musician and teacher, Roman laid the ground for an increasingly rich music scene in 18th century Sweden. He was also the first Swedish composer to attain international status, and had a prolific musical output covering most of the genres of his time, instrumental and vocal, with the exception of opera and oratorios.

Life

Childhood, studies and early performances

Johan Helmich Roman was born into a musical family, the son of Johan Roman the elder − himself a member of the Hovkapellet (the Royal Court Orchestra) ­− and his wife, Catharina Margareta von Elswig. His father’s family had their roots in Finland, while his mother was from a German family that had recently moved to Sweden. Johan Helmich was therefore enrolled at the German school, which was the best in Stockholm and which exposed his young mind to a broader European cultural heritage.

Johan Helmich was quick to display an exceptional gift as a violinist, having no doubt received a thorough musical grounding from his father at home. Already by the age of seven, according to Sahlstedt, he ‘played his Violin at the Royal Court where he performed difficult passages from diverse Compositions with much skill’ and ‘participated in his twelfth year at a grand Royal banquet, Barncomoedian at the Hoftheater (Royal Court Theatre)’.

In 1711, at the age of seventeen, Roman was given a position at the Hovkapellet, where the North German influence that had coloured the music of the Swedish empire period still held sway. Amongst the musicians there from 1712 was oboist Johann Jakob Bach, one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s older brothers. In 1704, he had taken up the post of regimental oboist with King Charles XII’s life guard, but was called in 1712 to Sweden and the Hovkapellet, where he remained until his death in 1722. So for many years, the young musician Johan Helmich Roman sat side by side with Johann Sebastian Bach’s beloved sibling in the Swedish court orchestra. Roman treated the oboe as his second instrument and was said by many to be a talented player, no doubt having picked up a considerable amount from the experienced German oboist from the magnificent, time-honoured Bach dynasty. During the first decades of the 18th century, however, the French influence became stronger at the Swedish royal court, and thus in the Hovkapellet as well, which gave Roman a valuable schooling in both the German and French stylistic ideals.

A young Swede in Handel’s orchestra

Amongst all the dispatches that passed between Stockholm and Bender during Charles XII’s fateful sojourn in the Ottoman Empire is a short document made out to Marshal of the Court Nicodemus Tessin concerning certain salaries at the royal court:

It is Our gracious will that […] musician Johan Roman the Younger may travel for some Years to perfect himself in Musick, and willing likewise Support for his Journey, do grant him full Salary;
                                                                                    At Bender 19 March 1712
                                                                                    Carolus.

For Charles XII, this was a matter of little importance; for the young musician and for the development of the Swedish music scene, the decision was a momentous one.

When Roman − already a year after being first employed − was granted permission by the King’s grace to study overseas, the Hovkapellet and its finances were ‘verie weake for the tyme’. Consequently, Roman was not able to depart until the new year of 1716, and then to London. Very little is known of his stay in England. According to royal secretary Abraham Sahlstedt’s address at a ceremony in commemoration of Roman, the young Swede was quickly ‘taken up as a Violinist at the Opera’ soon after his arrival and that he was given lessons in basso continuo ‘by the great Maestro Handel’ and in composition by ‘Musices Doctor Pepusch’.  Sahlstedt remarks further that ‘the Swedish virtuoso […] had, on demand, demonstrated his skills on the Violin and Oboe’ to the Duke of Marlborough and other dignitaries. ‘As a consequence thereof, the Duke of Newcastle, did prevail upon him to leave the Opera and join his Court as a Gentleman, and that he proceeded to do in 1717’.

The King’s Theatre − where Roman was employed − was then one of the foremost opera houses in Europe, with Italian opera as a speciality, Handel as the house composer, and a long list of brilliant vocal soloists on its books. However, financial straits forced the opera to close in the autumn of 1717, which coincides nicely with the record of Roman’s leaving his employment there in that year. After a couple of years in fallow, the King’s Theatre made a bold return to Italian opera, investing in the continent’s leading singers and re-signing Handel as director of music. The orchestra he was now entrusted to lead comprised 34 musicians of high international calibre, and included, according to the payrolls from 1719/20, one Mr Roman in the second violins. ‘The Swedish virtuoso’ was not one of the top ranking musicians of this first-rate ensemble − salary-wise he was low down with the other second violinists − but he was there, the only Scandinavian, in one of the most desirable orchestras in Europe of the time.

This meant that the young Swede was in the orchestra when Handel led the brilliant premier of Radamisto from the harpsichord in April 1720. And regardless of whether or not Roman was taught basso continuo by Handel, he was certainly able to study Handel’s own continuo technique and his manner of leading the singers and musicians night after night. For the next few seasons, the programmes were dominated by a trio of composers: Handel, Giovanni Bononcini and Attilio Ariosti − all richly represented in Roman’s notated legacy. There can be no question that he became thoroughly acquainted with Italian baroque opera and its stylistic ideal.

Roman, Hovkapellmästare

Back at the Swedish court, the new royal couple was waiting impatiently for Roman’s return. After the fatal shooting of Charles XII in November 1718, his sister Ulrika Eleonora had been elected queen, but she soon abdicated in favour of her husband, hereditary prince Frederik of Hesse-Cassel. In May 1720 he was crowned Frederik I.

Roman would serve this royal couple for many years. But naturally he was reluctant to leave his place in Handel’s orchestra and his service at an opera house that was bubbling with vitality. Awaiting him at home was a musical scene ‘in a state of much decrepitude’ − as Roman himself put it − and a stretch of heavy drudgery at a royal court in tatters after decades of war. Stockholm had neither opera nor concert circuit. Yet in the early summer of 1721 he returned to the capital as a highly trained, modern-minded musician. He had grown into a superb violinist and − most importantly perhaps − as a composer who had acquired thorough knowledge of new stylistic trends in opera and instrumental music. He had also gained experience of the vibrant English concert scene and a familiarity with the repertoire that would prove invaluable to his future as hovkapellmästare (chief conductor of the Hovkapellet).

The Swedish court was certainly in desperate need of a man of Roman’s capacity. Just a few months after his arrival in Stockholm he was appointed vice kapellmästare (second conductor of the Hovkapellet), ‘such that We may graciously derive much pleasure from the exceptional talent that Johan H. Roman has acquired for himself in Musick’, as it says in the letter of appointment issued by Frederik I on 18 December 1721. For the next few years, Roman worked hard to bring the orchestra up to an acceptable level.

Some years later, he also appeared as a composer with a series of cantatas in honour of the royal couple. The first of these Feste musicale is a cantata for soloists, choir and orchestra, which was performed on Frederik I’s birthday in 1725 − a comical dialogue in Italian between Svezia (soprano) and Frederico (bass). The queen was similarly celebrated with, amongst other works, the 1727 cantata Statt upp du trogna folk (for soprano, bass and orchestra). It is an occasional piece containing elements of both the French and Italian style. Some of the cantatas begin with an overture in the French manner, others with a simple Italian sinfonia. Most of the arias follow the Italian da capo form, are gently lyrical and in some cases richly ruffled with coloratura, and are obviously inspired by Bononcini and Handel.

Another kind of tribute music is Golovinmusiken, composed on commission of the Russian ambassador in Stockholm, Count Nicolai Golovin, in honour of the coronation of the twelve-year old Tsar Peter II in St Petersburg in February 1728. The event was celebrated by extravagant feasts that demanded a great deal of music. And Roman delivered a rich stock of charming, highly varied instrumental pieces − 25 all told.

It was naturally a matter of great importance to Roman to qualify for the post of hovkapellmästare as a composer too. His opportunity arose in October 1726, when the old hovkapellmästare died. A few months later, authorisation was issued for ‘Our true Servant [and] much beloved Johan H. Roman […] to be Capellmästare at Our court’, making Roman the nominal leader of the Hovkapellet. Six months later, Roman published his XII Sonate a flauto traverso, violone e cembalo, the only work by the composer to be printed during his lifetime. The flute sonatas were dedicated to Queen Ulrika Eleonora − a gesture of obsequious gratitude from the newly appointed hovkapellmästare − and with them, Roman presented himself to the public as a fully-fledged composer.

Soon after Roman’s appointment as hovkapellmästare there are clear signs of increased activity at the Hovkapellet, reorganisations that reflect the radical changes on the contemporary European music scene. So, for instance, in July 1727, the two boys who had served as trebles were replaced by women, breaking the centuries-long tradition of using boys in the higher registers in order to comply with the new vocal style’s use of female voices in opera arias and cantatas. It was also the first time that a woman had been employed by the exclusively male Hovkapellet, which also gave Roman access to professional female singers for the many vocal works he would go on to compose.

Hitherto, Roman had naturally assumed the traditional role of the court’s private composer and conductor. But in 1731, he brought the orchestra into the open to perform public concerts, heralding a new era in Swedish music in which classical music, no longer confined to the court and the church, was made available to a general musically interested public. In doing this, Roman was also something of an international pioneer too; public concerts for paying audiences were held in only a few places around the continent. England led the way, although Roman had probably also been inspired by Paris’s famous Concerts spirituels. The first Swedish concerts were performed at Easter 1731 in Riddarhussalen in Stockholm, with Handel’s Brockes passion on the programme. Several Handel works featured on the repertoire over the coming years, including Chandos anthems, his pastoral Acis and Galatea and the oratorio Esther. Ten years after his stint in London, Roman was thus able to perform in public some of the works he had probably heard Handel himself conduct.

One remarkable fact is that the lyrics of these works were translated into Swedish. This passion for his native tongue is very much evident in Roman’s vocal output. While he was the first to advocate the use of Swedish in music, it was in fact one of the most fruitful aspects of the country’s 18th century cultural life in literature, drama and science.  The ‘cultivation’ of the language was also considered one of the main missions of the Vetenskapsakademien (the Royal Academy of Science, founded in 1739), to which Roman was elected as a representative of musical science within its first year.

Roman the composer saw his own mission as creating a rich repertoire of sacred music in Swedish, and this he achieved in different ways: he composed his own works, he translated the lyrics of foreign vocal works in to Swedish, and even set to adapting foreign works. After his Andliga sånger, comprising almost a hundred compositions to Swedish lyrics, mostly from the Book of Psalms, his sacred production culminates with Then Swenska Messan for soloists, choir and orchestra, composed in the early 1750s. Roman had thus fulfilled his ambition to demonstrate the ‘Swedish language’s facility for church music’; this did not, however, prevent him from setting lyrics in other languages. In his music too, Roman ‘the Father of Swedish music’ − was international in the highest degree.

A new journey, new impressions and new music

For Roman the composer, the 1730s and 40s seem to have been a period of maturity and prolific output. In 1735 the opportunity arose for him to travel abroad again, this time to England, Italy and Germany. He was away for two years and the experiences he gathered made a profound impact on his rich artistic development.  He spoke English, French, Italian, German and understood, according to Sahlstedt, ‘enough Latin to read an author’, and these skills no doubt eased his valuable contacts and encounters with many of the leading musicians and composers of the time.

Roman was now travelling through a musical Europe very much marked by the rupture taking place between the high baroque and the new, gallant style. He entered circles where the waves of debate swelled high about the superiority of French or Italian music, and about the attempt to blend the two in a stile misto. After these two years, Roman was extremely well-orientated in the new musical ideas and techniques of his time, which can be seen, to a certain extent, in the many names that feature in his surviving excerpts and transcripts, in all the sheet music he brought back with him to the Hovkapellet, and − most clearly of all − in his own musical production. His instrumental pieces contain most of the settings and genres in fashion at the time, as well as the different national stylistic ideals − music that is suited exceptionally well to both the court and the public concert halls.

His orchestral production comprises almost twenty sinfonias, nine suites, four overtures, seven solo concertos and a good many freestanding orchestral pieces and sketches. In his chamber music, the trio sonata and the solo sonata for one instrument and continuo are well-represented. There are also harpsichord sonatas and multi-movement works for solo violin. These remarkable Assaggi a Violino Solo are some of the most independent in his oeuvre.  Assaggio roughly translates as ‘attempt’ or ‘trial’, and behind this rather unassuming title hides suite or sonata-like compositions in three or four movements for unaccompanied solo violin − a rather unusual form for this era. While J. S. Bach’s masterly solo works for violin and for cello are well-known to posterity, they can hardly have been known to Roman. However, it is likely that he became acquainted in London with Geminiani’s sonatas op. 1 for solo violin, which was published in 1716 without continuo. Maybe the young Swede also listened to these pieces performed by Geminiani himself, who was a violinist at the English court and on London’s blossoming concert scene.

Roman’s late period

In the early 1740s, a number of radical changes took place at the Swedish royal court. The marriage between Ulrika Eleonora and Frederik I was a childless one, and when the queen died in November 1741, the question of succession became precarious. In the search for a suitable heir, Swedish eyes turned first and foremost to the Danish and German royal houses. In the end, the chosen candidate was Adolf Frederick of Holstein-Gottorp, and in October 1743 the new crown prince made his entry into Stockholm. A few months later, a marriage contract was sealed with Princess Lovisa Ulrika of Prussia, sister of Frederick the Great.

The wedding was celebrated in the summer of 1744 at Drottningholm Palace, where the Prussian princess was received with all conceivable splendour. Hovkapellmästare Roman provided the grand musical arrangements and performed his most resplendent work − his so-called Drottningholmsmusiken − for the ‘royal nuptials’. The ‘Bilägers musique’ (Royal Nuptials Music) is a 24-movement suite − with another eight movements in reserve − that was doubtlessly divided up into suitable combinations for ceremonies and processions and for performance as concert pieces and mealtime music over the four days that the wedding lasted.

The young royal couple came as a breath of fresh air to the rather elephantine Swedish court life. Unlike Frederik I, Adolf Fredrick and Lovisa Ulrika were both music lovers: he played cello, she the harpsichord. On his arrival to Sweden, the new hereditary prince brought his own orchestra of 14 musicians, a welcome reinforcement of its Swedish counterpart, which had around 20 members at the time. Without question, the new crown prince and princess were making new demands on music at the Swedish court.

For Roman, the change in circumstances ought to have brought a wealth of fresh opportunities. He if anyone had mastery of all the current styles flowing through European music, and he was the right man to animate the music at the new court. Yet after the wedding ceremonies at Drottningholm, Roman withdrew increasingly from his duties, partly on account of his failing health and gradual deafness. On top of this, in June 1744 − two months before the royal wedding and in the midst of his work with Drottningholmsmusiken − Roman was made a widower for the second time and had to raise his five young children on his own. In 1745 he was granted leave from his position at the court without loss of pay, and given the title of hovintendent (royal court superintendent). He subsequently moved with his children to his father-in-law’s Haraldsmåla estate near Kalmar, although this did not deter him from maintaining lively relations with the city’s music scene and with the court.

A few years later, he was ordered back to the royal court to lead the music for Frederik I’s funeral in September 1751 in Riddarholm Church and at the crowing of Adolf Frederick and Lovisa Ulrika in Stockholm Cathedral two months later. For these two ceremonies, he compiled the music, led the coaching of the musicians and composed a number of works, most importantly Högst Salig Konung Fredrichs Begrafnings Musique and Hans Mayt: Konung Adolph Friedrichs Krönings Music. The grandiose national ceremonies would be hovkapellmästare Johan Helmich Roman’s final trial of strength at the court he had served ever since he was taken on as a violinist in Charles XII’s court orchestra at the age of 17.

He tarried in Stockholm for a while longer to lead the performance of Then Svenska Messan at the Ekeblad palace in the spring of 1752, possibly composed on commission of Marshal of the Realm Claes Ekeblad. Roman’s mass was not conceived for liturgical use, being a Missa brevis that although containing two of the normal parts of the High Mass − Kyrie and Gloria with the closing Laudamus − takes an otherwise quite liberal approach to the service. The music has a more concert-like feel and belongs more in a concert spirituel of the kind that he himself introduced into Sweden.

By the early summer of 1752 Roman was back in Haraldsmåla. During his final years ‘in the Wildernesse’, as he put it himself, he spent his time translating works of music theory by, amongst others, his old mentor Pepusch. He also continued to compose, mainly vocal pieces from the Book of Psalms.

A delicate − and quite remarkable for his time − testimony to the tender love Roman felt for his children appears in his will, the last preserved document written in his own hand: It is, he writes, ‘my solemn Will that since my Children are all equally dear to me, so shall that which I leave behind be divided equally between them, so that the Sisters shall receive the same portion as their Brothers, for they are all equally dear to me. / Lilla Haraldsmåla d: 31 Decemb:1757.’

Hovkapellmästare Johan Helmich Roman died of cancer on 20 November 1758 − half a year before the revered maestro Handel. His last dated composition is from June 1756 to words from Psalm 11: ‘In the Lord put I my trust’. And so ended the Father of Swedish music’s earthly labours.
