Music of Today: Bent Sørensen
There’s no categorising the great Danish composer Bent Sørensen. His is an inimitable style which is both contemporary in language and infused with nostalgic allusions to the past. We present 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”.
