KASPER HEMMER PIHL
Pihl & Schelling
Though the harp is as ancient as the mountains, the modern harp is actually developed more or less at the same time as the saxophone. The two instrument are very much product of the romantic era; however Pihl & Schelling don't stop there!
The duo has comissioned works by several leading Dabish composers such as Ib Nørholm, Peter Bruun and Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen, taking the ensemble into the 21st century…but that is not all.
