Even in its most expressive passages, the music of Peter Bruun (b. 1968) owns an innocence in tone that normally belongs to childhood; an innocence that is more common in folk music or pop songs, but one which Peter Bruun grafts on to chamber music by maintaining an intensity and energy of expression that few composers have at their disposal. This album presents four of Bruun’s most evocative chamber works in world premiere recordings by Danish Ensemble MidtVest.

Peter Bruun’s background is in the ‘rhythmic’ genres. In 1989 he began studying composition with Niels Marthinsen, and at the same time studied philosophy at the university. In 1991-1997 he trained as a composer and music teacher at the Royal Academy of Music in Århus. His composition teachers there were Karl Aage Rasmussen and Per Nørgård. Peter Bruun has mainly composed vocal music and works for small ensembles. He also teaches music theory at the Academy in Århus.

In 2008 Peter Bruun recieved the Nordic Council Music Prize for the successful opera MIKI Alone written for Figura Ensemble. Beforehand Peter Bruun has received the National Arts Foundation three-year grant (1996) and Wilhelm Hansen Composer Prize (2000).
