JØRGEN JERSILD (1913 - 2004)
Born in Copenhagen, Jørgen Jersild went on to study with Albert Roussel in Paris. He spent many years teaching at the Royal Danish Music Conservatory.
Instrumental and Vocal Music
Jersild’s compositions include effective works for unaccompanied choir. His instrumental music includes a number of works for harp, written for the harpist Osian Ellis. Originally showing the influence of his period in Paris, his work later developed a more characteristic quality of its own.
