Welcome to Edition Borup-Jørgensen, where it is our pleasure to celebrate the life and work of the late, great Danish composer Axel Borup-Jørgensen (1924-2012).

Axel Borup-Jørgensen holds a special place in the Danish music story. He was a modern composer. One with a highly distinctive poetic vein. Modern, because he broke with musical traditions and right from his early works in the 1950s allowed his music to sound exactly as he had conceived it.

He was self-taught and prolific – with a long list of works, including music for orchestra, chamber music, songs with piano and other instruments. He was also a as voraciaous concert-goer and keen visual artist.

2014 is a special year as we celebrate the composer's 90th anniversary with a long line-up of concerts and recordings. See our Calender for a full list of events. Please join us in our celebrations of a unique artist and figure in Danish music life.

The website will be developed further within the next few months.


Edition Borup-Jørgensen has a fund for artists who would like perform the works of Axel Borup-Jørgensen. If you would like to apply for funding for a project, you can apply here.
