Henrik Knarborg Larsen

Danish percussion artist Henrik Knarborg Larsen has performed as a soloist and chamber musician all over Scandinavia, Europe, Asia, and the United States. He is Director of Percussion Studies at the Royal Academy of Music Aarhus/Aalborg in Denmark, where he has revised the percussion curriculum to encompass the modern principles of E-learning, student-based teaching, and body and mind awareness inspired by the Japanese martial art Ki-Aikido. He has presented masterclasses around the world including at The Juilliard School of Music, Sibelius Academy, and Conservatorium van Amsterdam. In 2007, Larsen premiered in Paris a solo show entitled “Les sons de l’art, “ which combined theatre and contemporary music performance. In 2014, he acquired the position as percussionist at Århus Sinfonietta, the oldest and most prestigious contemporary music ensemble in Denmark. He has recorded several CDs, including his solo compact disc recording Convergence (Classico). In 2015, he released a new media format video and an artistic research article on Simon Steen-Andersen’s solo work “Split Point.” Larsen was recently awarded a two-year Artistic Research Grant from the Danish Arts Council, which will include research on marimba sound and Ki-Aikido principles as well as video recording some of the milestone compositions in the percussion repertoire.
