Also from the Swedish Heritage Site, a Humoresk by Helene Munktell.
munktell, helene - humoresk.pdf
From Grove:

Munktell, Helena (Mathilda)

(b Grycksbo, Dalarna, 24 Nov 1852; d Stockholm, 10 Sept 1919). Swedish composer. Her father was a talented amateur musician and a successful industrialist. Her mother was well educated and arranged lively salons in Stockholm. Munktell was taught the piano by Carl Fexer and composition by Ludvig Norman, Johan Lindegren and Joseph Dente. She studied in Paris (1877–9) and, until about 1910, spent every winter there. Composition, which she studied with Benjamin Godard (1885–92), gradually became her main interest. About 1890 she met d’Indy, with whom she continued her studies (c1892–1910). She became a member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Music in 1915.

Munktell made a name for herself as a composer in Stockholm in 1885 with songs such as Sof, sof and Ater i Sorrento, which showed an individual style (with some French influence) and were well received. During the 1890s she was especially productive, composing songs and choral works. Her ballad for baritone and orchestra Isjungfrun (Vision polaire), composed in 1889, was performed in Paris at the Salle Pleyel and her comic opera In Firenze was given in Stockholm in 1889 and 1891.
