Ole Buck is in his very own way a central catalyst in contemporary Danish music. His career has been marked by scandals and controversies – at times completely eclipsing the unique nature of his music. He was denied admission to the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, which resulted in a number of older composition students – including their teacher, Per Nørgård – leaving the institution in protest. This would later prove to be the beginning of an important era in Danish music history. Buck’s music often relies on just a very few notes and a set of utterly simple rules. The piece Summer Trio from 1968 for flute, guitar and cello is a principal work in his oeuvre and a piece that helped define a new and important direction in Danish music – the so-called ‘new simplicity’.
