That about covers it, IMO, however on a forum like this a lively exchange is always better than going through an old, dusty thread!

Summary of a Q&A in Billed Bladet #52, 2013.

Where a B.I. Bering would like to know whether Frederik IX really was a talented conductor.

Jon Bloch Skipper replies that he was. In fact he was very good!
He received lessons from early on by the musical director of the Royal Theatre, Georg Høberg, who said about his pupil: “If the King hadn’t been born for his high office, he would have become one of the best conductors in Denmark. Of that I’ve never had a moments doubt”.
Frederik IX mostly conducted private concert but also went public a couple of times. QMII said about her father conducting: “When he stood on his rostrum and it went well, we in the family always said: You can tell from dad’s back that he’s happy”.
Frederik IX was indeed very fond of music. No less than 92 protections were related to music.

After completing his basic education, Frederik entered the Royal Danish Naval Academy.
By the time he became the King of Denmark, he had several senior commands on active service.
Frederik had attained the rank of Rear Admiral.
