Playing at Cafe OTO in London, featuring “Copenhagen Clarinet Choir” and “Aar&Dag”.
Take a look at “En verden, der melder sig” [A World, Reveals].
It is a listening walk in a giant room, where I play a clarinet improvisation that is amplified by a gigantic air conditioning system. The wind blows – metal rattles – notes flow…I don’t know what it is, while I listen to a world, revealing.
A vinyl that documents my latest exhibition is out. 250 signed records, only released physically.
The music on the record is a listening walk in a giant room, where I play a clarinet improvisation that is amplified by a gigantic air conditioning system. The wind blows – metal rattles – notes flow…I don’t know what it is, while I listen to a world revealing.
The record can be purchased at Palm Spree Records, Copenhagen Contemporary, Herning Museum for Contemporary Art or write me by writing me (larsgrevemusic a gmail.com).
My exhibition was reviewed at Danish sound magasine Seimsograf. Comparing my work with James Turrell and naming the sound “wild and untamed”.
Through the last two years I have been working on a research project called “Rooms of Resonance”. It was a part of the European “Artistic Research” program, which The Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen and the Danish Ministry of Culture appointed me to do.
The final dissemination of the work can experienced through research catalouge here: www.researchcatalogue.net/view/1152127/1156679
Danish newspaper Information are printing a comprehensive portrait of me this week. For 8 months music journalist Ralf Christensen has been following my whereabouts. He named the 6 pages article “on of Denmarks most interesting musicians”. I speak about my life, choices and the zeitgeist we are in – while life and loss surrounds me. It is in Danish, and you can read it here: www.information.dk/tidens-mest-interessante-musikere
“Vår Dag” premieres at Skånes Danseteater 28.11.2021.
“Vår Dag” both means “our day” and equinox in Swedish. This performance is about life in Skåne, a western part of Sweden. Greve found the title and concept for the piece, which was developed together with choreographer Tina Tarpgaard. All sounds and movements were collected in Skåne – all kinds of citizens shared their music, breaths, favorite sounds and brought into a one-hour compositions.
Greve wanted the audience to feel the sound, and there designed sounding benches. You can literally feel the sound of Skåne.
“Vår Dag” will be touring in fourth months in public houses in 2022. Visit Skånes Dansteaters website for more info: https://www.skanesdansteater.se/en
I was invited to do a concert series for the festival Gong Tomorrow. I created a resonating rooms, where walls and ceiling where sounding. In this room, three different act were invited to perform:
_Maurice Louca (EGT) & Lars Greve (DK)
_Jacob Anderskov with Holstebro Music Schools Horn Ensemble
_Søs Gunvor Ryberg
I composed “In The Shadow of Hope” for trombone, guitar, piano, drums and two sound walls.
It was performed by Aarhus Sinfonietta and premiered in an old concert hall in Aarhus, as a part of Aarhus Jazz Festival 2021.
The piece is dedicated to my dear and late friend, Ingvar Cronhammar.
After 10 years I chose to leave the band “Girls in Airports”. We’ve travelled music, the world and life together so the decision is not easy. I am happy to be a part of the release “DIVE”, and even more happy that band will continue.
New dance performance made i collaboration with Resonating Rooms and Recoil Dance Performance Group / Tina Tarpgaard.
HØST [Harvest] is a dance performance and music installation. The audience surrounds the stage, which is a speaker. The earth is litteraly shaking, while the performers are dancing.
HØST will be touring Denmark and Spain trough spring. For more info visit www.recoil-performance.org/da/productions/hoest/
A square in Aarhus will be named after Else Marie Pade on the 29th of August. Along with the opening, the venue Radar had put together a festival of honouring events. Unfortunately it is cancelled.
My contribution was to make a poster, that both was a graphic piece of music + gave info about the event. It is now hanging around in Aarhus – take a ‘listen’ if you are there.
On July 11th Vestjyllands Kunstpavilion will be hosting a new version of “solhverv” – a moving audio-visual portrait of the western part of Jutland. The entire project and exhibition is made together with photographer Fryd Frydendahl .
On the opening day people can hear a short solo set by me followed by second set performed by the local accordian-club from Videbæk.
20 years ago, Maria Bäck went on vacation to Stockholm with her mother. It ended with her mother having a mental breakdown – and the 14-year-old Maria wandering around in the capital city alone.
“Psychosis in Stockholm” is Marias feature film debut, which I am proud to be the composer on. The premiere has been postponed due to covid, but is expected to be screened in Swedish theaters from august 28. More info to come…
Girls in Airports performed a new song at Danish Music Awards, which Niels Overgaard from jazznyt called “A demonstration of musical force and power”.
‘Danevirke’ is a collaboration between pianist Jeppe Zeeberg and myself, featuring four amateur big bands from Denmark. The music is out on 10″ vinyl today, released by Centrifuga Records.
The title ‘Danevirke’ draws strings to a battle in 1864 – the had build a (weak) fortress and (strong) believe that we could win against the Germans. The Danes lost the battle. This historical moment was chosen as the title of music-piece to put focus on current society and the nationalism that springs not only in Denmark, but throughout Europe. The composition can be interpreted as a wordless commentary on the nationalist flourishing of today, which we hope and believe will decay!
The music begins in an optimistic manner. It emulates a people preparing for war, still believing they are going to win. Along the way, chaos arises, and you will experience a musical work that is disintegrating more and more.
Additional to the release, a live version of Danevirke will be performed at the G(((o)))ng Tomorrow Festival in Copenhagen on November 1st 2019. The art museum Copenhagen Contemporary will provide the setting for at musical tour de force when more than 70 musicians from four amateur big bands will gather for the frst time and perform ‘Danevirke’.
Thank you Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune / Dagbladet Ringkøbing-Skjern / Per Høgh Sørensen/ Roulette Russe/ V1 Gallery / Statens Kunstfond DJBFA / Komponister og Sangskrivere and most of all the citizens of the whole municipality who contributed to this project!
Dagbladet Information has written a great review of Solhverv.
You can read the entire text here, or have sneak peak through these small excerpts:
“Med ’Solhverv’ har vi fået et audiovisuelt montageværk og en multimedial hjemstavnsdigtning på højt kunstnerisk niveau. Det kommer fra musikeren Lars Greve og kunstfotografen Fryd Frydendahl, der har portrætteret Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune – og også formår at skærpe modtagerens sanser over for egen hjemstavn”
“Altså samarbejder en højtuddannet pro med amatører om virkelig smukke kompositioner, der får deres helt egen nerve. I meget mere løse og folkeligt mangefarvede fortolkninger, end hvis det havde været professionelle, der havde forløst det stramt og perfektionistisk.
Den første komposition »Sommer« er gennemsyret af virkelighedens lyde. En mand fortæller om sin afsked med Indre Mission, da de gejstlige mente, at det var hans alkoholismes skyld, at hans søn døde. Hertil kommer optagelser af Skt. Hans-bålets knitren, knallertbøller på hovedgaden og folkedans.
Det er en betagende montage, som suger lytteren ind i lokalmiljøet og smider et væld af snapshots fra det vestjyske miljø op på den indre nethinde. De to følgende skæringer er ikke mindre formidable.”
“Og i det hele taget fungerer billedsiden, som lydsiden, som en smuk opblødning af grænserne mellem prosa og poesi, vanens blindhed og nærværets skarpsyn, reportage og kunst. Solhverv lægger betydning i det banale og peger på det ekstraordinære potentiale i det normale – hvis bare man lytter eller ser efter.”
Composed a 15 minute site-specific composition for four lighthouse, which was a part of Teatret-OM’s theater piece.
The piece has been touring for some weeks already, but there’s still a chance to see it in Lyngvig Fyr in june, by following this link
Girls in Airports will be releasing three digital singles this spring. Here’s an excerpt of the first named “Rold Skov”.
Happy to be a part of the three-piece sax-section for european Bon Iver Tour!
Proud to be nominated for a Reumert, 2nd year in a row. Last year it was with the children’s performance “Tre Ben” and this year for being a part of the dance performance “X-mythologies”.
Kresten Osgood and I are taking a break after four years with improvised concerts on public schools. It’s been more than fun – it has also been really meaningful to play concerts and talk about the power of music and improvisation.
Together with photographer Fryd Frydendahl I am making an audio-visuel portrait of Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune. During the next months I will record with Stadil-Vedersø Friskole, Ringkøbing Big Band, Spjald Marimbaorkester, Hovers church organ, the choir in Tarm, Videbæk Harmonikaklub and many many others.
From december 21st to january 21st our work will be displayed at Ringkøbing Rådhus.
“dødedans” (death dance) is an artwork made exclusively in 66 editions. The album is a co-creation sculptor Ingvar Cronhammar and me. The artwork presents clarinet and saxophone improvisations cut on a transparent vinyl and laid in a three-kilo heavy aluminum cover.
Proud to be backing Bon Iver for Haven festival in Copenhagen.

Just premiered Tre Ben, a dance performance for kids from 1,5 years and older…
I composed and recorded the music for piece, which will be touring in Europe on/off during the next years.
Kickstarted a new project with my childhood friend and photographer Fryd Frydendahl.
This will be the first step in a larger project we will be doing in collaboration with Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune; the council where we grew up. The basic idea is to do a portrait of the whole council by making each citizen cocreational in a larger project called “Solhverv” (Solstice). The overall idea is to invite all people to contribute to “Solhverv” in different meetings with Fryd and I, and in the end produce a uniting and so far unseen piece of art.
This music movie “Sort Hav” is a pilot project for “Solhverv”. It is made out of field-recordings made on a 13 hour Schooner-trip arranged by the council, while sailing from Copenhagen and Allinge on our way to “Folkemødet” on Bornholm.
“Sort Hav” was published in Ringkøbing Skjern Dagblad (local newspaper) on Summer Solstice. You can read the interview here (in Danish).
Just finished recording my next solo album, which will consist of field recordings made in different rooms in Copenhagen.
Happy to be playing on guitarist player Lars Bech Pilgaard new album “Som Før”.
The record was released on 100 green vinyls today. Check it out!
Here is a recording the Danish Radios Concert hall the 19th of March. The Jazz radio hosted an evening featuring some of their favorite jazz musicians, where I was very honored to be included.
The music is improvised, but can be divided into three parts: The first is a solo clarinet, which is dedicated to my first musical mentor; Bo Felix Johansen. This is followed by a duo with trumpet-virtuoso Mads La Cour, who I also play with in his quartet “Almugi”. Then the Danish poet Peter Laugsesen joins; this is our very first meeting and I was very moved by poems and timing.
You can here the music here, where I highly recommend using headphones.
Havn’t been so good at updating this page with new releases. Here are the latest where I am honored to be featured:
Had the honor of being artist in resident at my first music school in Holstebro with Gert Sørensen (principal timpani at Danish National Symphony Orchestra) last week.
Right now we are mixing the recordings we made of small kids, pre-conservatory students and everything in between playing the “Aquarellen über das Meer”. Back in 1968 these 21 paintings were translated into graphic musicscores by the amazing Else Marie Pade in the most beautiful way. Watching, hearing and recording these young musicians making each their version is sooo inspiring!
My guard while recording at the Audio Rebel with Eduardo Manso, Felipe Zenicola and Thomas Harres.

Danevirke was premiered at Copenhagen Contemporary for the opening of “Gong Tomorrow Festival”.
Information, Kristeligt Dagblad and Politiken all made great reviews, and gave us 5 out of 6 stars.Here are a few quotes:
Åbningen af årets Gong Tomorrow-festival foregår i Københavns urbane udkant. I den store sal i Copenhagen Contemporarys nye residens på Refshaleøen er der højt til loftet, og langs væggene løber flere lag af grandiose ventilationsrør. Publikum anvises en plads på gulvet, og her sidder vi så og føler os små, fordi vi er omringet af et abnormt antal saxofoner, trompeter og tromboner i forskellige nuancer af sølv og messing.
Kristeligt Dagblad (af Sune Anderberg):
Den nuværende regering har ambitioner om at opprioritere befolkningens praktiske musikudøvelse, og ” Danevirke” er et slående eksempel på, at dette ikke nødvendigvis står i kontrast til ambitiøse kunstneriske visioner. Et værk, der så tydeligt arbejder med autoritetskritik, taber ikke i værdi, blot fordi musikerne rammer lidt ved siden af eller udviser volumenmæssig ustabilitet. Tværtimod bliver amatørismen en forstærkning af det æstetiske indhold.
Politiken (af Henrik Friis):
Greve & Zeebergs værk fungerede overraskende godt. Den sprøde klang af messingblæsere i let slingrende forening skabte et virtuelt rum med fire vægge – en for hvert bigband – der lagde sig rundt om os som stemmer fra hver sin verden. Til at begynde med i form af glad og optimistisk jazz, men lidt efter lidt mere og mere kaotisk, indtil verden faldt fuldstædig fra hinanden i orgier af messingklang. Fra midten fik vi de to professionelle og deres poetiske udskejelser, der på samme måde byggede op fra stille kerner til voldsomme kulminationer.
De smeltede smukt sammen, amatørerne og de professionelle, i en meget menneskelig musik med alle de fejl og skævheder, den slags nu engang har.
Proud to be nominated as “Danish jazz composer of the year” for Danish Music Awards for “Solhverv”.
Farum Big Band, Big Band Ribe, Night Train Bigband, Svendborg Gymnasiums bigband, Jeppe Zeeberg and I will be opening Gong Tomorrow at Copenhagen Contemporary November 1st.
The music is called “Danevirke” and is about nationalism. I think it will be somewhere in between wayward, chaotic and beautiful…It will definitely be the only live performance – ever😅!
We will also celebrate the new 10″ vinyl record “Danevirke”, released by Pladeselskabet Centrifuga supported by JazzDanmark, DJBFA / Komponister og Sangskrivere and Statens Kunstfond.
Our concert will be followed by the mind blowing chamber ensemble Quatuor Diotima.
A night to remember!
Girls in Airports has been playing together for almost ten years, and this year we got the honour to open Copenhagen Jazz Festival + a sold out concert at Alice.
Politiken was at the opening in Kings Garden and gave us this 5-star review – thanks!
I am beyond proud to announce that “solhverv” – an audio-visual portrait of Denmark largest and most deserted municipality is out!
It is made with my childhood friend and photographer “Fryd Frydendahl”. The portrait was made during the period from summer to winter-solstice (solhverv in Danish), from the lightest to the darkest day of the year.
A big part of this project was to meet and involve people living in Ringkøbing-Skjern Kommune. So side A on the vinyl is a collage-like composition where you hear local ensembles such as Videbæk Harmonikaklub, Ringkøbing Big Band, Stok og Steen Koret, Vedersø Friskoles Guitar-ensemble and many many other. On Side-B I am playing the same three tracks as you hear on SIDE A, but this time it is only me playing together in a church, the moor and in a lighthouse.
Fryd has also collaborated with locals on the visual side, as well as adding her own portraits. You need to see it! I am a huge admire of her, and it has been rewarding on many levels to make this project together.
“solhverv” is only available in physical version. The book is released on Roulette Russe Publishing. You can see + buy it here: https://rouletterusse.dk/product/fryd-frydendahl-lars-greve-solhverv/
Composing, recording and mixing music with Mads Forsby, for Recoil Performance Group / Tina Tarpgaards next piece.
It is a choreographed performance that engages the citizen and takes place at several of the country’s local town halls. The performance puts the citizen in focus and tells the story of the things that divide us into boxes and the things that join us together as people.
Else Marie Pade was a musical pioneer, who was among the very first to work with electronic music in Denmark. Her life and works is unbelievable and has been a huge source of inspiration to me. I had the honor to talk with her before she passed away in 2016. In one of our meetings she asked me to do an interpretation of my favorite piece; “Faust”. She was significantly proud of this score, because as she said: “It balances perfect between being a graphic composition and a painting”.
I tried to record it many times on saxophone, but always felt the actual sound was a deduction of the written composition – I heard a richer music looking at the score. So after many years of trying and thinking I decided to release it as public post card through “go-card”, who distributes free post cards all over Denmark. Back in the days composers would send each other scores to exchange inspiration – this release was my attempt to do the same.
The past weeks quite a few records where I play have been released. I recommend them all:
Horn section and solos on: IceAge – Beyondless
Feature on Belgian trio: Donder – Sss
With trumpet virtuoso: Mads La Cour – Hule
Feature on Polish duo: Wood Organization
Mathias Holms album: Øya – Dreams Rewind
“Lysets Engel” is a new piece written for eight church organs premiering in Høsterkøb Kirke april 22nd. You can hear it every half hour, everyday from 18 in the evening until 08 in the morning until may 22nd. It will play from two speakers located inside the organ, which makes it sound like the organs is playing.
Høsterkøb Kirke is located 15 km north of Copenhagen. The acoustics, the light and whole atmosphere is amazing and hard to describe. Painter Alexander Tovborg made this work, that gives a great impression.
Preparing for the exhibition of Solhverv in Ringkøbing Rådhus on solstice december 21st. There will be videos, photos printed on foil and pasted on the grand windows, sound installations and photo portraits.
There will be to two official openings, on at sunrise (09.00) and the next at sunset (15)

New tape out on Insula Jazz and Hiatus.
Proud to be the composer for the theater piece “3 to midnight” by Teatret OM.
The piece is inspired by the “Doomsday Clock” – a picture of how close we are to the end of the world. It was introduced by scientists and Nobel laureates in Chicago in 1947, and in 2015 has been brought forward to three minutes to twelve.
This is the piece excerpt of the song for the two sisters, who in piece are illustrating time through dance.
Performing at Glyptotekets Winter Garden at the event called “SLOW” tonight. The theme of the evening is “longing”.
Come by a enjoy an evening with many other great artist features.
New collaboration between the classical Ensemble Midt-Vest, pianist Carsten Dahl and I.
Recordings are just finished for a new album, consisting of improvisations and a new graphic score I made.
Can’t wait to mix, master and share it with you.
For the last months I have been composing music for a dance theater piece “3 to midnight” for Teatret OM.
The piece is inspired by Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. The scientists behind it uses the clock as a symbolic way to measure the countdown to armageddon. In 2015 the they placed the clock at 3 till midnight, which is the closest we have been in many years.
So this is a piece is about time, and will premiere in may 2016 where I will be uploading a bite of the music.
Writing new music in Rio for Ensemble Midt Vest and Carsten Dahl.
Sound check at the Martinelli building in SP.
Girls in Airports just dropped a new album ‘Fables’.
This is an excerpt of my solo album “Breidablik”, consisting of site-specific saxophone and clarinet improvisations recorded in my homeland. Like Breidablik, these images were captured in the western part of Denmark, rediscovering a vast landscape of lit dunes and moor on the shortest night of the year.
A billion thanks to the guys behind this film, hours and hours of dedicated work is behind this film, so please check the credits after the movie or under the screening.
The film was shot in a very high resolution, and should actually be watched with two HD-projectors combined on a BIG screen. We hope that will happen, and will invite you all if it does.
Picture wise, Youtube is not as good as Vimeo. So if you have a big screen, please visit www.vimeo.com/larsgreve/breidablik.

The 04.01.2015 I performed a site specific solo concert at Katuaq in Nuuk. It was a great to spend New Years Eve in Greenland, where I had the chance to dive into some of Greenlands many amazing traditional tunes.
One of them is their adaption of the funeral song “Nearer My God To Thee” named “Guutiga, illimmi qallilgit” on Greenlandish. Here is a short improvisation over the theme on double clarinet.
Breidablik has been selected as one of the top ten releases in 2014 by Jazznyt.
The record is has also just been given a great review by Berlingske Tidende.
