Andy Pape (1955 - ) 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 whilst retaining its artistic strength and integrity, often juxtaposing an infectious wit with tragedy. He studied Musicology at The University of Copenhagen followed by composition with Professor Ib Nørholm at The Royal Danish Conservatoire. Pape has a keen interest in theatre and drama. Aside from many operas - including Houdini the Great (1988) and Sigurd the Dragon Slayer (2005) – 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’ (1990).
