(b 1966 )

Among the youngest generation of composers in Danish music, Karsten Fundal is probably the one who has received most commissions and had most works performed. Karsten Fundal studied as a teenager with Hans Abrahamsen and Ib Nørholm, but around the age of 20 drew crucial inspiration from abroad: he met the American Morton Gould, and studied for a year with Louis Andriessen in Holland. Then he studied for two years in Århus with Per Nørgård and Karl Aage Rasmussen. Karsten Fundal had his breakthrough at the beginning of the 1990s with works like the sextet Anelsernes Land (Land of Mists) (1990), the orchestral piece Ballad (1991) and the piano concerto Liquid Motion (1993). Worth singling out among later works are the violin concerto Floating Lines - Broken Mirrors (1995-96). He has received two of the big prizes in Danish musical life: the Wilhelm Hansen Composer’s prize in 1994 and the Composers’ Society Prize in 1995.
