Sterbende Gärten

Rebecca Hirsch, Martyn Hill, Åsa Bäverstam, Danish National Concert Choir, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Leif Segerstam

Bent Sørensen is one of the most talented of the younger generation of Danish composers. He studied composition with Ib Nørholm and Per Nørgård. His music is highly evocative and the titles of many of his works reflects his fascination with concepts like dissolution and decay. Sterbende Gärten was given the Nordic Counzil Music Prize in 1996.
