Kim Larsen songs for classical guitar
CD - Vinyl - Digital
Worldwide release June 4th 2021
Kim Larsen (1945-2018) – the much loved Danish rock musician and multi-artist - captures – in music and words – the Danish soul. With his 500 recorded songs and 40 albums he is known by all Danes of all ages.
Guitarist, and head of guitar department at The Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen, Jesper Sivebæk, had 2 heroes in his youth: Andrés Segovia and Kim Larsen – and they have followed him ever since.
For more than 10 years Jesper Sivebæk has worked on the pieces on this album. With his great experience he uses the possibilities of the guitar to the utmost, and follows the classical tradition of making instrumental versions of folk songs – like in Miguel Llobet’s arrangements of Catalan folksongs, in Benjamin Britten’s English and Chinese folksongs arrangements, and in Bela Bartok’s Hungarian folk songs. Sivebæk is true both to the beauty and the simplicity of Kim Larsens songs, and to his instrument
– the classical Spanish guitar. In these arrangements classical guitar players around the globe now have 12 new pieces to discover and put on their concert programs.
