For many years Tove Lønskov has been a lecturer at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen and the North Jutland Academy of Music. She has a wide-ranging career as a soloist, chamber musician and accompanist in Denmark and abroad. She has been a soloist with most of the Danish symphony orchestras and has worked with among other conductors Uri Segal, Thomas Briccetti, Jorma Panula, Zdenek Macal, Avi Ostrowsky and many Danish conductors.
