Prior to the meeting with the ensemble, the composition students say:
Jonas Færgeman, 30 years
It has been really rewarding to write for Danish Chamber Players! This is the first time I am writing for a professional orchestra, and it has really boosted creativity, as well as the need to understand the sound context of the ensemble. It has been exciting to learn about the different instruments as best you can now without having them in your hands.
It is always exciting what happens when you have a new task to be solved compositionally. The possibilities are endless, and can seem unmanageable if you are not inspired by something concrete.
For a long time I have wanted to work with text as a starting point for my music, and to let the dramatic and marvelous language of the text be reflected in the abstract essence of the music. This is something I try to do in my work composing for Danish Chamber Players.
A job I look forward to sharing with them, and hearing their thoughts and helping words about.
Laura Krog Dayani, 19 years old.
I go to the Mgk capital in the first year, where I have Daniel Fladmose as a teacher composition. At the same time I go to High School in 3rd grade.
I played Marimba for many years, and acoustic guitar for a little less time.
I'm relatively new to composing and I'm still researching and trying to figure it out what I want. I am very happy for this opportunity to be allowed to compose something for Danish Chamber Players. It's a great opportunity to try something new and be allowed to experiment with something different.
It is a special opportunity for the young people to write a piece, which is played by a professional ensemble and help to hear the samples of the music and the musicians' suggestions for how it can possibly be improved. Maybe something needs to be written differently, how do you actually write for a harp, does it sound like you had intended?
