Niels Rønsholdt

With an insistence on aesthetic and technical precision, Rønsholdt has been whittling consistently and mercilessly for many years upon the genres of instrumental music, chamber opera and installation, often in co-operation with the media artist Signe Klejs. With works such as 'Triumph' (2007) and 'Honeymoon' (2009), Rønsholdt and Klejs have created new electronic music formats in which Rønsholdt's musical stringency has been maintained in a media platform that presents and develops the thematic work on all levels. Rønsholdt's music is characterised by an extreme tenderness that entices the listener to enter difficult universes, where the aesthetics and composition are so powerful that you can feel the door slam shut behind you. - Danish Arts Foundation's Committee for Classical Music
