Andy Pape
Born 1955, USA

Andy Pape was born and spent his youth in California, moving to Denmark at the age of sixteen. With a wide range of influences including avant garde performance theatre, jazz and rock, his music is accessible without being patronising, often juxtaposing an infectious wit with tragedy.

Andy Pape is drawn to theatrical concepts: aside from his six operas – Houdini the Great, The Boxer, Leonora Christine, Till Death Us Do, Simsalabad and Sigurd the Dragon Slayer – his concert works often contain dramatic scenarios, such as the power struggle between pianist and page turner in Variations on 'Nearer My God to Thee'.
