At this time he was already well known in Germany as a composer and artist. In Norway he performed 60 operas and he founded a song school. From 1840 to 1850 he was conductor of the theatre in Christiania (Oslo), and afterward became a military bandmaster and organist at Frederikshald (Halden), where he died. His compositions are in almost every form, his songs being the most numerous.
