Ole Buck   (Born 1945)

composer

Ole Buck (b. 1945) is one of the best kept secrets in Danish contemporary music. He is unknown to the general public, esteemed by all who have heard his music. Ole Buck has developed his own “new simplicity” and has
worked with repetitions of a small number of crystallized tones, which are dabbed through the music like brush-stokes in a Japanese drawing. With his pristine expressive idiom, many stylistic elements find a place in Buck’s music. His works are elaborated down to the smallest detail, with many exquisite, elegant features. On the surface the music may seem cool, but beneath this there are always narrative or playful elements. Ole Buck has composed several chamber works in succession as well as instrumental works for large ensembles, for example the four-seasons piece Landskaber (Landscapes).

OLE BUCK Værker for sinfonietta
[..] “Buck's music is well worth running to ground. His minimalism differs from that of the major American practitioners but its shimmer and glow should quickly win it new friends, even if there is some pepper in the mix.”
