About

The prize-winning Lars Hegaard (b. 1950) has, over more than 40 years, been an important voice in Danish musical life. Centred on the composer’s own instrument, the guitar, we present six of his most important works for small groups. With their refined modernist expressivity, they offer a fascinating picture of the guitar’s possibilities as a solo instrument, as accompanist and as the first amongst equals in chamber music.

Danish composer Lars Hegaard’s music deals with the way in which associations and contrasts unfold in time and in relation to each other. His music does this in a kind of musical stream of consciousness, where the individual events and musical phenomena follow each other without either association or contrast.

Hegaard’s music can give us an understanding of shared traits in widely different types of people and existential situations.

This new album contains six world-premiere recordings of Hegaard’s works for solo guitar as well as for various ensembles with the guitar as centrepoint.

Guitarist Jesper Sivebæk has extensive concert engagements as a soloist and chamber musician and is co-founder of the Scandinavian Guitar Duo, which won the Danish Broadcasting Association’s Chamber Music Competition in 1993. He has won prizes at international solo guitar competitions in Spain, France and Italy. Since 2007, Jesper Sivebæk has been an associate professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.
