Wind Octets

Danish Wind Octet

Herman D. Koppel, Svend S. Schutz and Asger Lund Christiansen represent the oldest generation in contemporary Danish music, sharing a stylistic point of departure in the Neoclassicism of the period between the two World Wars. Sven Erik Werner belongs to the middle generation and was influenced by the Polish avantgarde of the sixties. Belonging to the youngest generation, Lars Graugaard is notable for experiments that transgress the boundaries of musical convention.
