AXEL JORGENSEN (1881 - 1947)
The Danish violinist Axel Jørgensen was employed as a viola player in the Danish Royal Orchestra. His compositions were principally designed for his fellow musicians in the orchestra.
It is in particular the Romance for trombone which has ensured that Jørgensen is remembered as a composer. Originally written for trombone and piano, it was later arranged by the composer for trombone and orchestra. His Suite for trombone made another contribution to neo-Romantic repertoire for the instrument.
