90th birthday concerts

In celebration of the great Danish composer Poul Rovsing Olsen’s 90th birthday there will be held two sonorous performances. First on October 21 at the Mantzius concert hall in Birkerød, Denmark, where mezzo-soprano Hetzna Regitze Bruun and pianist Kristoffer Hyldig will perform a portrait concert of Poul as well as pieces by the French composer Olivier Messiaen.

On November 3 the Royal Library in Copenhagen invites audiences to an evening in memory of Poul’s unique world of music. His music was literary inspired by the “world” and with a touch of France, India, Arabia and the Orient he certainly composed new tunes for the Danish music scene. This night will also include the premiere of a string trio by Peter Bruun, who similar Poul, lets the world inspire his work.
