Violinist, composer, and virtuoso facilitator

Meet Bjarke Falgren, fourfold Grammy Award winner and one of Denmark’s best and most recognized violin-virtuosos.

Since the age of 7, Bjarke has dedicated himself passionately to mastering his instrument and the music that flows through his almost 300-year-old violin. Svend Asmussen – to many seen as the World’s greatest jazz violinist – has enthusiastically designated him as his successor stating: “Bjarke Falgren is the hardest swingin´fiddler I have heard since Stuff Smith.”

Bjarke tours all around the world and has released 8 CDs. Furthermore, Bjarke writes and produces music for film and theatre, teaches in two music-conservatories and has worked with some of the biggest artists in Denmark and abroad.

Extract from the press

Falgrens proficiency in the language of music is without limits, his precision and his spectacular, seductive, lyrical playing are all reasons that one would have to search far and wide for an adequate superlativeManuel Weber, Kieler nachrichten
Falgren plays with a devil-may-care approach, a big sound and a bite in his stroke, which very well can remind one of Stuff Smiths, but Falgren’s musicality goes deeper than SmithsBoris Rabinowitsch, Politiken
Falgren is a very competent musician who wrings out emotions of his instrument, that one hardly thought possibleBo Carlsson, Österlen magasinet
Falgren stood among those on another level. The tonal quality and ingenuity complimented his melodious thinking. He inspired his band and audience to an euphoric highUlrika Lind, Nya Åland
In short, there is a little magic in the air, when the young Danish violinist plays his old violin, and no doubt that he, with his sharply swinging playing, places himself in the Danish jazz-violin-list of kingsKjeld Frandsen, Berlingske tidende
Falgren, with his exquisite sound, must be designated as a top-class talent within the world of jazz violin. A delightful respect for the history of the instrument coupled with a youthful will to flout the history and just play in the nowKjeld Frandsen, Berlingske tidende
