Dennis Nilsson

We have asked our teachers to recommend a place, some Danish music or a piece of Danish music. It could also be a Danish writer or artist. This is what Dennis recommends.

What are your favourite places in Copenhagen?
”The airport. It is the most reliable start of something fun, and security is always a fascinating place to observe humankind.
Vesterbro. If you cut through the layers of hipsters and other characters, Vesterbro has at least a few conciliatory aspects. But by all means, stay far away during Distortion.

What I like best about Copenhagen:

  • Easy to get around by bike
  • Green areas
  • Long, bright summer’s days

What I miss in Copenhagen:

  • More long, bright summer’s days
  • Variation
  • Other countries”

Who is your favourite Danish musician?
”Nikolaj Nørlund. His ’Nye optagelser’ (1997) has yet to be surpassed as the greatest musical recording in Danish ever.

Who is your favourite Danish writer?
”Frank Lisborg. A sharp observer of the absurdities of life. His artistic peak was ’Øvehæfte 5’ (2006), in which he set new standards for storytelling in Danish.”
