Andy Pape   (Born 1955)

composer

Andy Pape (b. 1955) is American-born, but very Danish in his down-to-earth attitude to contemporary music. In 1990, with the film director Erik Clausen, he created the chamber opera Houdini den Store (The Great Houdini) which had unheard-of success with audiences as a touring, carnival-like show. Andy Pape was a pupil of Ib Nørholm. In his works he questions the post-war avant-garde, and provides the answer himself with inspiration from American minimalism, Neo-Classicism and the pure joy of playing and composing.

Andy Pape: An Amerikaner in Danmark
"…these are major showpieces for the soloists, brilliantly performed here. Throughout all this music it is obvious that Pape has a sense of humor. The Odense orchestra and conductor Henrik Vagn Christensen play very well, and audio is state-of-the-art, vividly capturing percussive effects."

L'Homme Armé - Works for Solo Cello
5/6 Hjerter

"Her modelleres og modificeres meningsfuldt og sammenhængsskabende, ofte med et skarpt blik for det dramatiske potentiale. Og så er der i øvrigt tale om rigtig smukt cellospil med stort teknisk overskud”
