Festival Description

Horsens hosts an annual classical music festival in memory of the great Danish composer Vagn Holmboe (1909-1996). His works are among those performed by national and international soloists and ensembles at various venues around town. Vagn Holmboe studied composition at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, and spent time studying in Berlin and Romania, where the folk music was a great inspiration to him. Haydn, Nielsen, Sibelius, Stravinsky and Bartok were also influences on his work.
