Danse Macabre (Dance of Death)

With Halloween drawing closer, it’s the season for dark, ghostly music and scary images so here’s an excerpt of ‘Cortège & Danse Macabre” (Procession and Dance of Death) from the symphonic suite ‘Cantabile’ – now on YouTube. As performed by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Thomas Dausgaard, at the premiere performance in 2009.

New album release on November 21st

My next album “Like a Flame” will finally be released in ten days – on November 21st – by the Swedish record company Proprius Music! It’s a double album with 23 of my own works performed on the pipe organ in Jørlunde church.

In the week following November 21st, where I’m holding a “CD release concert” in Jørlunde church at 16:00 (4 pm), it will be available in most of Scandinavia, with the rest of the world following soon after. But I will post the specific release dates for each country/region as soon as I know myself.

Here’s a sneak peek at the cover, created by Michel Winckler-Krog:
