Marin receives P2 Prisen

The recording and animation of Axel Borup-Jørgensen's 'Marin' received the Danish Classical Music Award, P2 Prisen, in the category Album of the Year, New Classical.

The prestigious title of 'Album of the Year, New Classical' hardly even covers the scale of the release 'Marin'. The release contains a recording of the comprehensive Axel Borup-Jørgensen work by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Thomas Søndergaard, as well as the animated film supplementing the work and a documentary film about the composer. 

The jury writes: “With its combination of recordings of major works, a portrait film, and an animation film, Marin is a splendor release, that shows Axel Borup-Jørgensen as a composer and a human being in a very compelling way. By virtue of this release, Axel Borup-Jørgensen is finally placed as the central Danish Modernist composer he is".

Marin concert performance in 2019
In October 2019 The Danish National Symphony Orchestra will revisit Marin once more, and perform the symphony at a concert conducted by Thomas Søndergaard.
