Once again I find myself facing a new year and thoughts about the year that’s coming to an end always appears. Thank you to all the musicians and artists that I have been so fortunate to work with in 2014: TopGunn, The Minds of 99, Nikolaj Koppel, Vocalgroup Concert Clemens with Carsten Seyer-Hansen conducting, Cæciliakoret with Michael Deltchev conducting, Aarhus Studiekor with Mathias Skaarup Sørensen, Ensemble Recherche, Sct.

The two alternative versions of songs by the recording artists TopGunn and The Minds of 99 I made to be performed by the artists themselves and TV-host Nikolaj Koppel in the programme Musikåret 2014 - which will air on DR3 the 27th of December 2014 at 8pm – are already online at DR3’s youtube channel.
AUT – Aarhus Unge Tonekunstnere – will celebrate our 50th Anniversary in 2016 and I have curated two out of three events arranged in collaboration with Aarhus Symphony Orchestra.
First event is a concert during SPOT 2016 and it will consist of a new piece co-composed with Anna Katrin Øssursdóttir Egilstrøð that will be premiered by Anna Katrin (voice) and the Orchestra 30th of March 2016 at Symfonisk Sal, Musikhuset Aarhus.
Second event is our Anniversary Concert 29th of September 2016 in Symfonisk Sal, Musikhuset Aarhus, with a festive program soon to be announced.
Commissioned to compose two new pieces for Aarhus Symphony Orchestra!
This coming Sunday I will travel to Freiburg, Germany, with my fellow students Loïc Destremau, Piotr Peszat and Rafael Murillo Rosado to participate in Ensemble Recherche‘s Klassenarbeit. A great possibility to work very closely with the ensemble and this visit is the first of three visits to Freiburg during 2014 and 2015. The Klassenarbeit projekt will result in a concert with premieres of new pieces by us four from Aarhus and colleagues Ricardo Eizirik, Stephanie Haensler, Benjamin Ryser, Luca Valli, Matteo Manzitti and Alberto Barberis in 2015.
I was asked to do two alternative versions of songs by the recording artists TopGunn and The Minds of 99. The new versions will be performed by the artists themselves and TV-host Nikolaj Koppel in the programme Musikåret 2014, which will air on DR3 the 27th of December 2014 at 8pm. The show will rerun the 28th and 30th of December 2014.
I’m very happy to announce that I’ve been signed at publisher Edition·S and thereby having the honour to join so many great composers represented there!
