Sven Erik Werner   (Born 1937)

composer

Sven Erik Werner (b. 1937) began on his real composing career at a mature age. At first he worked in the Music Section of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation, and then for fifteen years he was principle of the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music. Only from 1989 did he begin to work as a full-time composer. In this respect Werner is self-taught. He is particularly inspired by recent Polish music, and the corresponding Danish type of “new simplicity”, while his works from the 1990s are more lyrical. He writes mainly for chamber ensemble, solo instruments and choir, but has also written operas and orchestral music.
