Notes & Reviews:

Thomas Koppel's (1944-2006) career as a composer and musician was unique in the world of Danish music. It had its sensational beginning when he began composing as a child. As a teenager he was well on his way towards a dual career as composer and classical concert pianist, but abandoned this in favour of avant-garde rock music and later an idealistic career as a musician on the political left. For the last fifteen years of his life he worked again with music scored for classical ensembles, but his output was always determined by an uncompromising attitude to life and society.
