Klaus Ib Jørgensen, composer

The works for accordion - from solo and duo through chamber music to concerto - form an important strand in the output of Klaus Ib Jørgensen (b. 1967). The virtuoso potential of the instrument appeals greatly to the composer's musical thinking, which is nourished by the vital energy discharged in the friction and encounters between opposite expressive poles. Along an elastic timeline the composer navigates intuitively between these extremes. At the same time the strong sense of form gives Klaus Ib Jørgensen's highly complex music a remarkable transparence.
