Riisager in Spain

September sees three performances of Knudåge Riisager's famous piece “Divertimento Op. 9”

On September 12, 15 and 16 the Spanish Joven Orquesta Nacional de España will perform Knudåge Riisager's piece Divertimento Op. 9 from 1925.

Earlier this year a new book on Riisager in two volumes was published. In this senior researcher at the Danish National Library Claus Røllum-Larsen sheds new light on the versatile Riisager's life and career, which, among other activities, saw him fill the role of composer, writer and principal at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.
