Christian Herluf Pedersen

Christian Herluf Pedersen was originally born in Denmark. In 1996 he traveled to USA to attend Berklee College of Music, but after 1 year he decided to move back to Denmark to work as a musician.

In 1998 he moved to Sweden to study saxophone from Cennet Jönsson at Fridhems Folkhögskola, and then on to Stockholm where he was accepted at the Royal Music Conservatory. In 2006 he completed his studies in Stockholm (studied from Joakim Milder and Karl-Martin Almqvist among others) and has been working as a freelance musician since!

Currently Christian Herluf Pedersen is a well known member of various ensembles across many different genres and has just emerged as a band leader and composer on his debut album “Christian Herluf Pedersen - Alliance”.

Awards:

Jacob Gades Rejselegat 1999
”Sometimes Pedersen plays with a hauntingly beautiful tone and deep sincerity, as on the ballad “J.S.,” and at other times relishing in the joy of making music with friends, as on “Bigger Leaps.” As a composer Pedersen’s pieces, while not flashy, do have a straightforward charm to them, but it’s in his soloing where Pedersen shines. His use of a wide variety of short motivic elements that evolve over the course of the solo, as in “Ronim,” is handled well. On other pieces, as on “Eastend,” he prefers to link longer phrases with short ones in a mature manner. He’s not always successful, but you can hear a spark of intuitive improvisational conceptualization that makes a strong nod towards Pedersen’s later and further development” - Jazzreview.com
