ERIK HOJSGAARD  

(b 1954 )

Højsgaard was a pupil of Per Nørgård, and as early as the age of 20 aroused attention with his first string quartet. The music of Højsgaard has a lyrically searching character, but this does not imply that he has no use for constructionism. He has created a special synthesis of expression and construction that can be heard in the instrumentation and orchestration, and more generally in the refined treatment of sound in his works. Since 1982 he has taught at The Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen.
