What is the current state of compositional music in Denmark and Germany?

In late november 2021, a panel talk was held at the German embassy in Copenhagen. Ole Bækhøj, director of Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, discussed with German based Danish composer Simon Steen Andersen, professor in Musicology Holger Schulze, and Lykke Friis, Head of the think tank Europa, how music, nationality, and identity is reflected in new and classical compositional music.

The talk was moderated by Katrine Nyeland Sørensen and initiated by Snyk.
