Matias Vestergård is a Danish composer, who made his debut from the advanced postgraduate programme in march 2022 at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen. He’s written music in many genres - solo works, choir and chamber music, orchestral works, a ballet score, and even a chamber opera with a cast of 21.
His music is characterized by clear lyrical intent, refined orchestration and a technical and stylistic flexibility that allows him to work both with amateurs and professionals. Upcoming projects include an album release with Danish label Da Capo, a new full evening opera for Copenhagen Opera Festival, and the premiere of a sinfonietta piece at the Helsinki Opera.
We are happy to say that Matias will be our composer-in-residence for 2023 & 2024.
