Solo Concert with Bjarke Falgren

The prize-winning and 4 times Grammy Award winner Bjarke Falgren and his 300 years old violin invite you on a musical journey with personal and passionate stories added all the big emotions that music has to offer. Bjarke Falgren’s own music finds its inspiration from “a world of music” with Folk music, Jazz, and Classical music as its center of rotation.

Improvisation and “creation in the moment” are central elements in the solo concerts, and Bjarke uses – amongst other things – a loop pedal to create his strongly personal sound universe. 

Many highlight Bjarke as a fiddler who masters his instrument to a degree that caused Svend Asmussen himself, before passing away, to declare that Bjarke should be the first one to receive “The Ellen & Svend Asmussen Prize 2017”.

Commentaries after Solo Concerts

“Fully present, down to earth, funny, poetic, and touching. Besides his extraordinary musical performance, Bjarke is an enriching storyteller.” 

Gro, teacher, project management

“It was a beautiful musical experience. One of those that expands the room and lets dreams swim through the cracks for a moment, while it takes the listeners for a flight on the light wings of free thoughts. Humor, sensitivity, and relevance makes Bjarke Falgren a both entertaining and moving experience for the young as well as the elderly audience.” 

Simon Lægsgaard, principal

“Besides possessing a great talent, and mastering and exerting on a high and serious level, Bjarke possesses the ability to be fully present with joy, empathy, ease and humor. You end up caring for both the music, the man, and all his seductive stories which tie it all together and leave you in an elevated state of mind.” 

Claus, teacher

“Love was flowing from Bjarke’s violin. I felt so grateful after the concert. He also had a lovely intimacy with the audience.” 

Mette, mentor

“The most touching and uplifting concert I have been to in a very long time. Luminous and inspiring from the beginning to the end.” 

Louise, teacher

“I will definitely recommend Bjarke’s solo concerts, because he manages to take the listener on a journey through the entire spectrum of emotions with a presence and a boldness that one seldom comes across.” 

Rasmus Sejersen, music teacher

Fantastically warm, intimate, and absolutely musical concert in Sct. Johanne’s church, where Bjarke Falgren’s music filled the big, beautiful church room, and gave everyone an intense and intimate experience. I was overwhelmed. The forest-song still resonates in my body. So beautiful.” 

Tonie Rudby, Sct. Johannes Church, Denmark

“As an organizer, your expectations are always exceeded when booking Bjarke Falgren. More warmth, more dialogue, more humor, more energy, more play. And then this huge and heartfelt joy of being a musician and a mediator of a trade which, with Bjarke Falgren’s talent, reaches far beyond the title of ‘an artist’”.

Sofie Rask Andersen, Dramaturge KGL+, The Royal Theatre, Denmark

 “Bjarke Falgren has visited Den Rytmiske Højskole (The Rhythmical folk high school) on several occasions. Besides a musical approach on an equilibristic level, Bjarke Falgren creates with his music and storytelling a unique atmosphere, which touches and embraces all listeners. A very special solo concert. “

 Stig Kaufmanas, musician and folk high school teacher at Den Rytmiske Højskole

 “It was a beautiful musical experience. One of those that expands the room and lets dreams swim through the cracks for a moment, while it takes the listeners for a flight on the light wings of free thoughts. Humor, sensitivity, and relevance makes Bjarke Falgren a both entertaining and moving experience for the young as well as the elderly audience.” 

Simon Lægsgaard, principal, Brandbjerg folk high school. 

“Copenhagen will be the host of the World Congress of the Union of International Architects in 2023 and Bjarke Falgren played a vital role in making this come through. Bjarke came all the way to Seoul to play at the Danish bid reception and he charmed everybody with his enchanting musical interpretations, excellent one-man show, good humour and brilliantly engaging performance.” Anette Blegvad, Arkitektforeningen
