May 3, 2014Composing with Eivør Palsdottir

In 2005 Faroese singer/songwriter Eivør Palsdottir and The DR Big Band collaborated on a very succesfull album called "Trøllabundin". I arranged some of the tracks for this album, which can be heard in the audio section of this site "Nú Brennur Tú Í Mær" and "Lær Meg Gud At Liva". In november 2014 a new work composed in collaboration between Eivør Palsdottir and Peter Jensen with texts by Marjun Syderbø Kjeldnæs and Thomas Kingo will be premiered by Eivør, The DR Big Big Band & The Danish National Choir conducted by Geir Lysne. The title of the work is "Sælkvinden" - "The Seal Woman" a traditional Faroese story that inspire the text and sonority of the work.

May 2, 2014Asger Jorn Reflections

Danish artist Asger Jorns centennial vil be celebrated by many Danish cultural institutions and museums. I have been commisioned by leader of "The New Big Band" Andreas Vetö to compose a suite of reflections on selected works by Jorn. The works will be currated by various Danish museums from their collections of Jorns paintings and performed by "The New Big Band" conducted by Andreas Vetö in the museums with first performance in Jorns museum in Silkeborg on the 14.th of september 2014. The work will be performed under a screen showing Jorns paintings and a unique recording of Asger Jorn playing clarinet will be used in the work.

April 22, 2014New album finished

"Crystal Palace" is the title of a suite for prepared and distorted jazz orchestra that I have been working on the past year. Recorded with The Danish Radio Big Band and reworked using various defect analog audio equipment sound engineer Morten Büchert and myself has created a truly unique sound scape for the work that we think will make the recording stand out.

Also in the works is an animated film by director Kajsa Kvaale inspired and created for some of the movements.

I am currently looking for a label that will be interested in releasing and promoting the recording.

You can listen to samples of the work in the Audio section.

June 2, 2013Composing for Eddie Daniels and The Danish Radio Big Band

Peter Jensen is currently working on a new piece for jazz clarinet legend Eddie Daniels and The Danish Radio Big Band. to be premiered at a concert in october 2013.

The piece will be a refelction on the famous clarinet concerto by danish classical composer Carl Nielsen and will develop some of the themes from the concerto in new directions .

May 3, 2013A suite of songs by Carl Nielsen

Conductor Andreas Vetö and "The New Big Band" will premier a new suite by Peter Jensen composed from three songs by danish classical composer Carl Nielsen featuring soprano Susanne Elmark. The premier takes place at Danish Technical University and is honored by the presence of Her Majesty Queen Magrethe II of Denmark.

Nielsens songs have been taken from their original harmonic environment into a new setting by Peter Jensen to emphasize their melodic beauty and to give the listener renewed focus on the texts. The songs are framed by quotes from symphonic works by Nielsen slightly recomposed and reorcehstrated for big band and percussion.

March 11, 2013DR Big Band recording new music by Peter Jensen

The DR Big Band records a new suite by Peter Jensen.

The suite has the working title "Crystal Palace" although it has nothing to do with the famous site in London of the same name. Through eight movements the music describes a journey into the central yard of a "Kasbah" or "Hutong" . Each movement is supposed to give the impression of walking through a house and between every house there is a yard where the soloist from the band improvises on the impression that they experienced walking through the musical rooms that I've created. I used a very restricted and limited orchestration palette to create the atmosphere you can have when walking in cities where every house is build from stones from the same quary.

November 25, 2012Composing for a new recording

The coming months I will be composing music for a new recording with The Danish Radio Big Band.

During the last couple of years I've been working on different approaches towards expressing my experience of architecture through music . In line with my recent new compositions "Crystal Palace" and "Five Sisters" the music for the DR Big Band will be a journey through "rooms" and "places" of my imagination.

September 01, 2012The Music of David Bowie

In August and September I will be working on deconstructing and arranging the music of Dawid Bowie for a production with singer Cæcilie Norby and the DR Big Band augmented with strings, classical woodwind quintet, percussion and harp. The premiere of this project will be the October 12 in the DR Concert Hall in Copenhagen.

August 19, 2012...based on numbers...

I'm working on two new compositions both based on numbers. "2775" is composed using the last four digits of my social security number and is part of a project for the "JazzNordEnsemble" where I've challenged all six composer/musicians in the group to write new music based on their "four last digits". The goal is to show that the composers personality will still be expressed in the composition even if it is based on random numbers instead of something that he or she have "heard" or "felt".

August 17, 2012"The Five Sisters"

"The Five Sisters" is a piece commissioned by the "Aarhus Jazz Orchestra" and is based on the facade "rhythm" and geometrical proportions of a significant warehouse in the Aarhus Docks. The piece will be premiered in front of the warehouse on September 1 and at a concert in Aarhus on September 6.

Grammy nominated and award-winning composer Peter Jensen has established himself among european composers for jazz orchestras. Beside being nominated for a Grammy for best instrumental arrangement in 2012 Peter has received a Danish Music Award in 2016 for Best Vocal Album and won first prize in the international composition competition ”The Thad Jones Competition” in 2003. He has also received multiple grants from The Danish Arts Council.

In 2014 Peter was offered a dream job as musical director in the Tivoli gardens. Situated in the center of copenhagen this cultural gem of Denmark has a long traditon of live music under the summer night skies. In keeping with the tradition Peter leads the Tivoli Big Band, Tivoli Salon Orchestra and a series of high profile jazz concerts featuring a host of renowned Danish jazz artists through the summer season.

As a young man Peter Jensen found it difficult to decide whether to pursue a career as an architect or as a musician.
Realising the similarities between creating houses for people to inhabit, and writing compositions for musicians to interpret, but with the added bonus of being able to express his creativity through the medium of his instrument, the trombone, Peter decided to brave on the uncertain livelihood of a professional musician.

A high school dropout, he left his small home town to attend the Academy of Music of Danish capital Copenhagen. Peter never got to finish his education. At the age of 21, and after only 1year of study, he accepted an offer to join the prestigious Danish Radio Big Band as a trombonist. Since its foundation in 1964, The Danish Radio Big Band has ranked among the very best large jazz ensembles in the world. Playing and recording with an impressive array of jazz soloists and composers, from Miles Davis to Hermeto Pasqual, and with chief conducters like jazz legends Thad Jones and Bob Brookmeyer, it has long been the dream band of many young Danish jazz musicians.

Although Peter had written his first big band arrangements as a teenager, he played with the The Danish Radio Big Band a couple of years before being commisioned to write his first arrangement for it. Encouraged by chief conductor Jim McNeely, he started to do more writing. Peters compositions and arrangements is largely recorded by the DR Big Band and a selection can be heard in the audio section of this website.

Currently, Peter Jensen teaches composition at the Academy of Music in Copenhagen. He has lectured at the universities of Copenhagen and Lund, as well as being a first-call sideman and arranger for every conceivable combination of instruments, from big bands to symphony orchestras. in Denmark , Scandinavia and the United States.

3 maj, 2014Nyt samarbejde med Eivør Palsdaottir

I 2005 udkom et frugtbart samarbejde mellem Eivør Palsdottir og DR Big Band i form af cd'en Trøllabundin. Jeg havde den store fornøjelse at arrangere ca. halvdelen af sangene til denne cd hvoraf et par kan høres i Audio afdelingen af denne hjemmeside Nú Brennur Tú Í Mær og Lær Meg Gud At Liva. Siden har det været et stort ønske for mig at samarbejde med Eivør igen om et projekt hvor vi også havde muligheden af at inkorporere DRs fantastiske Vokal Ensemble. Det er nu næsten 10 år senere lykkedes og vi er for tiden igang med sammen at komponere et nyt værk der hedder Sælkvinden og har tekster af forfatteren Marjun Syderbø Kjeldnæs og Thomas Kingo.

2 maj, 2014Reflektioner over Jorn

Asger Jorn hundredeårs fødselsdag vil blive markeret af mange Danske museer og kulturinstitutioner. Jeg er blevet kommisioneret af lederen og grundlæggeren af Det Ny Big Band Andreas Vetö, til at komponere en suite bestående af musikalske reflektioner over udvalgte værker af Asger Jorn. Værkerne kurrateres af forskellige danske museer fra deres samlinger af Jorn og suiten vil blive uropført af Det Ny Big Band under ledelse af Andreas Vetö søndag d.14.september på Jorn Museum i Silkeborg. Suiten vil blive ledsaget af projektioner af Jorns billeder på en storskærm og en unik optagelse af Asger Jorn der spiller klarinet vil indgå i værket.

22 april, 2014Ny indspilning klar til udgivelse

Det seneste års tid har jeg arbejdet på en indspilning af et værk for prepareret og forvrænget jazz orkester som nu er færdig. Sammen med lydteknikeren Morten Büchert har jeg skabt en unik lyd-identitet til værket som vi tror vil få værket til at markere sig som originalt. Animationsfilminstruktøren Kajsa Kvaale arbejder for tiden på en film inspireret af og tænkt til at ledsage flere af satserne. Jeg leder efter et pladeselskab som vil være intereseret i at udgive og promovere musikkenog man kan lytte til et par smagsprøver i Audio afdelingen af denne hjemmeside.

2 juni, 2013Nyt stykke til Eddie Daniels og DR Big Bandet

Peter Jensen arbejder for tiden på et nyt værk til jazz klarinet mesteren Eddie Daniels og DR Big Bandet . Værket vil blive uropført ved en koncert i oktober 2013.

Musikken er en reflektion over Carl Nielsens berømte klarinet koncert og vil udvikle nogle af temaerne fra denne i nye retninger.

3 maj, 2013Suite af Carl Nielsen sange

Dirigenten og kapelmesteren Andreas Vetö uropfører sammen med "Det Ny Big Band" en suite af Peter Jensen komponeret over tre sange af Carl Nielsen. Sopranen Susanne Elmark er solist og uropførelsen sker ved Danmarks Tekniske Universitets årsfest under overværelse af Hendes Majestæt Dronning Magrethe II.

NIelsens sange "Nu går du ud på livets vej", "Jeg bærer med smil min byrde" og "Se dig ud en sommerdag" er blevet placeret i nye harmoniske omgivelser af Peter Jensen for at understrege deres melodiske styrke og skønhed og for at give lytteren nyt fokus på teksten. Sangene er indrammet af citater fra Nielsens symfoniske værker som er reorkestreret for big band og percussion.

11 marts, 2013DR Big Band indspiller ny musik af Peter Jensen

DR Big Band indspiller en nyskrevet suite af Peter Jensen.

Suiten, som bærer arbejdstitlen "Crystal Palace" er i otte satser og skal beskrive en vandring ind til den inderste gård i en slags musikalsk "Kasbah" eller "Hutong" bebyggelse. Hver sats giver en oplevelse af at bevæge sig igennem et hus og imellem disse "huse" er der gårdrum, hvor orkestrets solister improviserer over de indtryk det gjort på dem at bevæge sig igennem de musikalske rum. Musikken er orkestreret i et meget restrektivt sprog for at give samme fornemmelse som man kan opleve i byer hvor alle huse er bygget af sten fra det samme stenbrud. Det er en drøm at den suite med tiden vil blive ledsaget af en visuel side.

25 november, 2012Komponerer til en indspilning med DR Big Bandet

De kommende måneder vil blive byde på en intens kompositions proces der skal munde ud i en ny udgivelse med DR Big Bandet. Gennem de seneste år har jeg arbejdet på forskellige måder at udtrykke min oplevelse af arkitektur gennem musik. Som en videreførelse af mine seneste nye værker "Crystal Palace" og "De fem søstre" vil den musik jeg nu komponerer til DR BIg Bandet blive en rejse gennem forskellige rum og steder som kun eksisterer i min fantasi. Det er mit håb at give lytteren en oplevelse af proportioner, teksturer, og lys som ligner den jeg oplever når jeg i drømme bevæger mig gennem forskellige rum i min lejlighed som ikke eksisterer.

01 august, 2012Cæcilie Norby synger Bowie

I august og september vil størsteparten af mine vågne timer gå med at skrive arrangementer til et DR projekt, hvor DR Big Bandet udviddet med strygere, blæsere, harpe og slagtøj fra DR Underholdningsorkesteret vil akkompagnere Cæcilie Norby i en række nyfortolkninger af David Bowie's kendte og mindre kendte numre. Cæcilie har arbejdet med dette projekt i mange år og det bliver en udfordring og fornøjelse at samarbejde med hende om dette projekt som er helt uden fortilfælde.

19 august, 2012De sidste fire cifre

Jeg arbejder for tiden på en ny komposition baseret på de fire sidste cifre i mit cpr nummer.

"2775" er en del af et nyt projekt til "JazzNordEnsemble", hvor jeg har udfordret alle seks musikere/komponister i ensemblet til at komponere et stykke musik ud fra deres "sidste fire cifre".

Der er findes mange værktøjer man kan bruge til at oversætte tal til toner og rytmer men min pointe med dette projekt har været at vise publikum, og komponisterne, at selvom man skriver ud fra fire tilfældige tal, i stedet for følelser, oplevelser, eller noget man har "hørt", vil komponisternes personlige udtryk stadig trænge ud. Vi arbejder med essensen af hvad det vil sige at komponere musik.

Måske skulle jeg have bedt alle komponisterne skrive ud fra de samme fire cifre, men jeg mente, at det ville være stærkere at tage udgangspunkt i noget intimt og personligt for den enkelt som netop, vores "sidste fire cifre".

17 august, 2012De fem søstre

"De fem søstre" er et nyt værk komponeret på bestilling af "Aarhus Jazz Orchestra". Værket er komponeret ud fra facade rytmen på en markant silo bygning på Aarhus havn - "De fem søstre" og er en del af et projekt i forbindelse med "Aarhus Festuge" der handler om byrums musik.

Det har længe været min drøm at forene mine to store passioner - musik og arkitektur - og "De Fem Søstre" er mit første skridt på vejen mod et større projekt hvor jeg vil "oversætte" og fortolke nogle af de bygninger som betyder noget særligt for mig til musik.

English

Peter Jensen er en af de få Danske komponister der har været nomineret til en Amerikansk Grammy. Siden han i 2003 vandt første prisen i den internationale komponist konkurrence ”The Thad Jones Competition” har han markeret sig på den Danske jazz scene som komponist og arrangør. Peter vandt desuden en Danish Music Award for bedste vokal album i 2016 og har bl.a. modtaget adskillige arbejdslegater fra Statens Kunstfond.

I 2014 blev han tilbudt drømmestillingen som kunstnerisk leder i Tivoli og måtte i 2016 endeligt forlade DR Big Band som han havde været medlem af siden 1996. Peter er tillige vejleder for Solistuddannelsen på Rytmisk Musikkonservatorium og har flere udgivelser med sine værker indspillet af DR Big Band bag sig .

Peter drømte egentlig om at blive arkitekt, men i løbet af 1.g trak musikken så hårdt i ham, at han valgte at afbryde sin gymnasie uddannelse og i stedet investere al sin tid i at øve sig med det mål at kunne bestå optagelsesprøven på Rytmisk Musikkonservatorium i København. Optagelsesprøven blev bestået i 1995 men efter kun et års studie blev også denne uddannelse afbrudt. Denne gang af et tilbud fra DRs Big Band om et års vikariat, som derefter afløstes af et tilbud om fastansættelse i orkesteret.

Peter skrev sit første bigbandarrangement som 16-årig til det lokale bigband i den nordjyske fødeby Vodskov. Sideløbende med sin musikerkarriere i København begyndte han at skrive for de forskellige orkestre han medvirkede i. Ib Glindemann var den første kapelmester, der jævnligt bestilte arrangementer fra den unge arrangør, og efter at have skrevet sine første arrangementer for DRs Big Band i 2000, opfordrede orkesterets daværende chefdirigent Jim McNeely Peter til at skrive mere til orkesteret. Siden har Peter været orkesterets flittigst benyttede arrangør og komponist .
