Anders Koppel co-founded the rock band Savage Rose in 1967, and played with them until 1974 when he formed Bazaar, a trio whose Middle Eastern and European folk-based performances anticipated the world music movement. His prolific career as a film composer began in the mid-1970s, and in the 1980s he became much sought after as a composer for ballet. Since the premiere in 1990 of Toccata for Marimba and Vibraphone, he has worked primarily as a composer in the classical world. Influenced by jazz, rock and Latin American music, Koppel’s music is often highly virtuosic and he has often been drawn towards concertante forms.
