Carl Joachim Andersen (April 29, 1847 - May 7, 1909) was a Danish flutist, conductor and composer born in Copenhagen, son of the flutist Christian Joachim Andersen. Both as a virtuoso and as composer of flute music, he is considered one of the best of his time. He was a tough leader and teacher and demanded as such a lot from his orchestras but through that style he reached a high level. His compositions are almost exclusively for the flute. His 8 volumes of etudes for flutists of the highest level are considered his largest success. They are still used all over the world when one wants to be top professional.
His complete works consist of 67 opuses which are mainly for the flute including solo pieces and piano accompagnied pieces. The Christian X's Honour March that was composed to the crown prince then, reached popularity.
