Reply To: Favourite Nordic film composers?
Good selection, Malte. Stefan Nilsson is genius. PELLE THE CONQUEROR is one of my favourite Nordic scores of all time, and I treasure my Nilsson compilation dearly.
Frans Bak I know personally; I particularly loved his recent score for the series DISPARUE.
Halfdan E is a friend of mine too, and he regularly does good stuff, although he’s missing that one big breakthrough assignment.
Fläskkvartetten is a group that doesn’t get the credit they deserve. Their score for the Norwegian movie EGGS was great; one of the best Norwegian films of the 90s.
Jacob Groth I’m familiar with, but haven’t really taken the time to check out his work.
I love Søren Hyldgaard’s work, as well as Björn Isfält — two composers that were taken from us way too early.
