Music of Today: Bent Sørensen

Part of Classical Season

The inimitable style of great Danish composer Bent Sørensen comes to life in this performance.

Both contemporary in language and infused with nostalgic allusions to the past, appreciate the works of this master of evocative musical storytelling with the brilliant and labyrinthine Minnelieder, the nocturnal and wistful Weeping White Room, and his classic The Deserted Churchyards, described by composer Karl Aage Rasmussen as 'a flickering, glittering world ... pervaded with memories, wisdom of experience and old dreams.'
