About

Anders Nordentoft (b.1957) has composed since his early teenage years. His father was an organist and at an early stage inspired his son to learn music and write his own music down. Anders Nordentoft plays guitar, violin and piano but today does not regard himself as a performing musician.

His work list comprises just over 50 titles, five of them orchestral works and seven works for large ensemble/sinfonietta. Nordentoft’s absolutely longest work, and his foremost work on the whole, is the music drama 'On This Planet' (2002), which plays for a good hour and was written for chamber orchestra and baritone. He has also written for choir and for soloists in a variety of contexts. In other words, Nordentoft has written music in well nigh all genres.
