Biography

Knut Algot Håkanson was a Swedish composer. He studied in Uppsala and Dresden. A short period he worked as a free composer in Stockholm. In Borås he was a conductor at Borås Orchestra Association. He also founded the Borås Music Institute where he taught music theory. In addition to composing in contemporary Swedish styles and in a thriving national Romanticism in choral music, Håkanson returned to an almost pre-classical style in Four madrigals (1929).
