Lars Boye Jensen (Piano)

Born: 1957 - Denmark

The Danish pianist, Lars Boye Jensen, was trained at The Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus and studied under Poul la Cour and Jørgen Hald Nielsen. His musical background is variegated, ranging from light music to jazz to classical music.

As a pianist Lars Boye Jensen has worked in revue, the theatre, radio and television. He teaches at The School of Music in Aarhus. Ever since he heard the legendary Danish entertainer and pianist Victor Borge perform a little waltz by Ignaz Friedman, he has taken a growing interest in so-called piano transcriptions. With this unusual repertoire he has performed in churches, schools, and before musical societies.

Lars Boye Jensen's discography includes a collection of virtuoso piano paraphrases on Viennese waltzes by Johann Strauss, an album with Bach transcriptions by Ignaz Friedman and a selection of piano arrangements of Gershwin songs. At the moment, he is working on a new recording – this time with piano transcriptions on ballet music by Tchaikovsky.
