Axel Borup-Jørgensen grew up in Sweden. He studied piano and instrumentation at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in 1946-50. As an composer he considers himself an autodidact. He has often taken his inspiration from Swedish culture; poetry in particular has been important to him. His style can be characterized as an atonal expressionism, often aphoristic and pointillistic. He is highly esteemed for his originality and uncompromising approach, and has recieved several awards including the Carl Nielsen Prize, and the W.H. PRIZE in connection with the performance of his orchestral work Marin. Besides the orchestral works his oeuvre includes about 150 solo and chamber works where percussion instruments are amply represented.
