Johan Helmich Roman (1694 — 1758) was a late Baroque composer, often called “the father of Swedish music.” During his lifetime, he has made two trips to mainland Europe and England, acquiring the latest musical tastes and styles of the time. He served as the deputy master and later principal master of the Swedish court orchestra and organized Sweden’s first public concerts, something then only heard of only in London and Paris. He composed a variety of works in the late Baroque idiom, including symphonies, concertos, trio sonatas, and cantatas. His musical style is generally characterized as being in the transition from late Baroque to the galant,style. Handel is cited as one of Roman’s most important influences.

The Drottningholm Music, or Music for a Royal Wedding, was written for the wedding of Swedish crown prince Adolf Fredrik and his wife Lovisa Ulrika in 1744. It comprises 24 movements, varying in orchestration and mood. It was not meant to be played sequentially.
