DANISH CHAMBER PLAYERS Danish Chamber Players
The Danish Chamber Players were established in 1991 and are based at the manor
of Fuglsang, frequented over the years by many great musicians and composers.
The ensemble consists of nine musicians, and its unconventional composition
gives it a sound all its own among Danish ensembles and a unique repertoire
which reflects Danish and international music from the Renaissance until today.
Experimental music theatre has accounted for several of the ensemble's striking
successes, including Sir Peter Maxwell Davies' Eight Songs for a Mad King,
Dominick Argento's A Waterbird talk and the world premiere of Niels Rosing-Schow's
The Judgement. The Danish Chamber Players perform regularly on Denmark
Radio, at The Other Opera and at the Royal Danish Theatre, Copenhagen, and the
ensemble is a welcome guest at music festivals in Denmark and abroad. They have
toured most of Europe, Australia and Argentina.
