Danish Conductor Jesper Nordin

Update, January 2020: Jesper has taken the position as Music Director of the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra (www.aarhussymfoni.dk) and that leaves little to no time for conducting, at least for the time being.

For that reason, the calendar and other content will not be updated.


Jesper L. S. Nordin is a Danish Conductor and Composer, born 1975 in Copenhagen.

He specializes in opera and contemporary music and is often involved in  tv, multimedia or mixed genre productions.

He had his official debut with the Copenhagen Phil. in December 2006 and has since then worked extensively with all professional orchestras, ensembles and choirs in Denmark, as well as orchestras in Sweden, Finland, England, Ukraine, Hungary and France.

From 2008 to 2010 he was working Head of Music at the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen, where he has also conducted in more than 25 productions, from large scale productions such as the complete Wagner Ring cycle, to contemporary opera, gala concerts, ballets and more.

He has championed new music throughout his career with over 150 world premieres under his baton, and numerous Danish first performances of major composers such as Thomas Adés, Louis Andriessen & Kaija Saariaho.

After his concert with ‘The Maltese Tenor’ Joseph Calleja and the Tivoli Copenhagen Phil in 2012, danish newspaper “Information” wrote:

“Tonight’s real star was conductor Jesper Nordin, who delivered unusually beautiful and empathic music. […] The orchestra followed Nordin’s responsive  and careful conducting in confidence, to the point of  an almost shimmering presence and musical immersion”.
