(b 1947 )

Hans-Henrik Nordstrøm was born in 1947. He was educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, and in 1990 he had his official debut in Copenhagen with the piece The Mountains of Monestiés.

Since then, Hans-Henrik Nordstrøm has received numerous commissions and his works have been performed by leading Danish orchestras, ensembles and soloists. He has received working bursaries and travel grants from the State Foundation for the Arts every year since 1990 as well as Hans Peter Nielsen’s Grant 1991, The Danish Composers’ Society’s Grant 2001 and Wilhelm Hansen Foundation’s Grant 2003. He was Composer of the Year 2003 at the Bornholms Music Festival and Composer’s Portrait of the Year 2004 in Birkeroed, north of Copenhagen.

Hans Henrik Nordstrøm’s works comprise primarily instrumental music: pieces for orchestra, sinfonietta, ensembles and soloists. The music often takes its inspiration from nature, both at a local and at a cosmic level, as well as from world of literature. His music has often been described as being strikingly Nordic and indeed he has been travelling continually to destinations like the Faroe Islands, Iceland, The Hebrides, and Lofoten.
