Anders Nordentoft   (Born 1957)

composer

In his works Nordentoft challenges himself with wild expressiveness and tensions, but must first and foremost be described as a lyrical and narrative composer. Behind his fine feeling for the immediate and the physical in music lies a delicate world of poetry and childlike innocence. Sometimes one senses the pain of a split between the two temperaments and of the loss of innocence. The darker poetic side of rock music has also inspired Anders Nordentoft. He has aroused considerable attention with works like Entgegen for sinfonietta, Born for large orchestra and most lately with On this Planet for singer and sinfonietta. Anders Nordentoft began his career as a violinist. As a composer he is a pupil of Per Nørgård, Ib Nørholm and Niels Viggo Bentzon.
