PAUL VON KLENAU
Danish National Opera
This gorgeous rediscovered work of huge historical interest – it was the first opera, in 1933, to make use of twelve-tone techniques – was heard by audiences for the first time in more than eight decades in a lavish and moving production.
Odense Symphony Orchestra
This Danish premiere of Bernstein's seminal work was conducted by the inimitable David Firman and named "Classical Event of the Year" by the Danish Broadcasting Corporation.
SOL GÅR OP, SOL GÅR NED
Royal Danish Opera
This dean of Danish composers swore he'd never write an opera – but when the Royal Opera's director Sven Müller heard he had one written and waiting, he snatched it up for DKT's 10th anniversary season at the Opera House on Holmen. The sold-out run received universally rave reviews.
