(1876 - 1954)

A pupil of Svendsen, the Danish composer Hakon Børresen enjoyed an active career in the musical life of his native country, while preserving his artistic independence.

Stage Works

Børresen won considerable success in Denmark with his 1919 opera Den kongelige gaest (‘The Royal Guest’), a work followed in 1921 by another opera, Kaddara. His ballet Tycho Brahes drøm (‘Tycho Brahe’s Dream’) was staged in 1924.

Orchestral Music

Børresen’s orchestral works include three symphonies, the second of which depicts the sea, and a Violin Concerto. He also wrote a quantity of chamber music.
