Indra Rise, composer, piano

Indra Rise was born and grew up in Latvia, where she trained both as a composer and pianist. Since 1993 she has lived in Denmark. Her music unfolds in a field of tension between her roots in Latvian culture and musical tradition on the one hand and an international, modernist orientation on th other. Indra Rise renounces sophisticated avant-garde resources and concentrates her music on genuine lyrical emotional expression.
