Finn Savery

Finn Savery has studied with his father C.M. Savery and at the royal Danish Conservatory of Music (1953-60). He also attended courses in Darmstadt, New York and Boston. Finn Savery is loyally and undogmatically sensitive to different styles of music and his compositions occupy an area between Western European modernism, tonal music, folk music and various kinds of jazz. He can cultivate one style, or have the styles clash within the one composition, or he can create gliding transitions and fusions between styles in such a way that the same musical substance is composed in different ways.
