Orchestral Works

Fini Henriques

Orchestral Works

Christina Åstrand, Max Artved, Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra, Giordano Bellincampi

Fini Henriques (1867-1940) was not only a well-loved violinist and popular composer, he was a cultural phenomenon. With unpretentious charm and great humanity he became the favourite musician of the Danes. His works radiate humour and a wealth of ideas. The music flowed easily from his pen, and he enjoyed unique success with orchestral music, especially the ballet Den lille havfrue (The Little Mermaid) and the theatre music for Vølund Smed (Wayland Smith).
