Bjarne K. Nielsen

Education: Tivoligarden 1965-1972 / The Royal Danish Academy of Music 1971-1976 / Sjællandske Livregiments Musikkorps 1977-1979 / Den Kongelige Livgardes Musikkorps 1979-1992 / The Royal Danish Orchestra 1982 – now.

My favorite musical composition: Der Rosenkavalier by Richard Strauss.

My greatest musical experience: Dvorak’s 9th Symphony with Georg Solti i 1982. Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration in 1992 in Musikverein, Vienna and Strauss’ Ein Alpensymfoni in 2012 with Hartmut Haenchen.

My most memorable/funny/unusual experience in the Kapel: Standing onstage in a Tigger costume and playing the solo in Donizetti’s Don Pasquale in 1986.

When I’m not playing in the Kapel: I enjoy cooking and a good glass of Amarone red wine.
