Mankell, (Ivar) Henning

Mankell, (Ivar) Henning, Swedish composer, teacher, and music critic; b. Härnösand, June 3,1868; d. Stockholm, May 8,1930. He received piano lessons from Hilda Thegerström and Lennart Lundberg, and also studied at the Stockholm Cons, (from 1887), where he took diplomas in organ (1889) and music education (1891). As a composer, he was autodidact. After teaching in Härnösand, he settled in Stockholm in 1899 as a teacher of piano and harmony. He also wrote music criticism for the Svenska Margonbladet and Stockholms-Tidningen (1899–1907), and was active as a short-story writer. In 1917 he was elected a member of the Royal Academy of Music. Mankell’s compositions, most especially his works for piano, are the work of a gifted individualist writing in a basically Romantic vein. His vast output of piano music included a Piano Concerto (1917), sonatas, ballads, nocturnes, impromptus, préludes, intermezzi, legends, miniatures, etc. He also wrote 3 string quartets, a Piano Quintet, a Piano Trio, violin sonatas, and songs.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
