Rudersdal Sommerkoncerter takes place in August, and numerous works by Jexper Holmen are on the programme.

Rudersdal Kammersolister performs two concerts with works by Jexper Holmen

Rudersdal Sommerkoncerter unfolds in 11 concerts ranging from medieval hymns to contemporary art music represented by the two composers in residence, Giya Kancheli and Jexper Holmen.

Jexper Holmen's works are performed at four different concerts by three different ensembles: The newly established ensemble Rudersdal Kammersolister in various constallations, Duo Askou//Andersen and Florin Harp Trio.

One of the concerts bears the title: 'Two originals' and places works by Jexper Holmen alongside works by Mozart. The programme includes two Jexper Holmen world premieres and two older pieces, and Holmen himself wrote the programme notes. One of them goes something like this:
