Jesper Koch, composer

The Danish composer Jesper Koch (b. 1967) has an unusual natural talent for writing for orchestra and has no qualms about engaging with the tradition. His works – at the same time playful and perfectionist – have reminiscences of both Late Romanticism and Impressionism. He usually draws his inspiration from texts, particularly from Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

This whole program, from beginning to end, is very rewarding and highly recommended.
(Fanfare Magazine)

Idyll, dream and nostalgia cross paths with grotesque wit in these Late Romantic-sounding, brilliantly written works with their beautiful sonorities.
