Mielck, Ernst, Finnish composer; b. Vyborg, Oct. 24, 1877; d. Locarno, Italy, Oct. 22, 1899 (2 days before his 22nd birthday). He studied piano in St. Petersburg and composition with Max Bruch in Berlin. His early death deprived Finland of a major musical talent. He left several works showing considerable technical skill and inventive power, among them a String Quartet (1895), Macbeth Overture (1895), String Quintet (1896–97), Finnish Symphony (1897), Dramatic Overture (1898), 2 piano concertos (1895, 1898), and Finnish Suite for Orch. (1899). A monograph on Mielck was publ. by W. Mauke (Leipzig, 1901).
