2018 concerto for guitar & symphony orchestra "På Herrens Mark"
Comissioned by Kaluga world of Guitar festival and performed May 29th 2018 with Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra
Conducted by Sergei Tararin at Kaluga Festival Hall - Kaluga/ Russia. The 45 min. guitar concerto contains 3 movements: "Romantic" "Mystic" & "Elevated"
"På Herrens Mark" is a danish expression meaning helpless but in the hands of god.
The music is mainly inspired by the nordic landscapes and therefore.
the 3 movements express different connections to the scandinavian nature
Here are videos from the performance in Russia:

"A completely different image from Henrik Andersen. This is one of the most famous fusion guitarists. In Kaluga, he performed something dawn, a thirsty flight, similar to the old legends alternating with a battle cry!
It sounded strong and large, like a single canvas, on which the imperturbable Andersen embroidered on the strings an intricate landscape.
How, passionate, impetuous and ardent is Denmark!
How much purity, power and love!
And in the end - a unique, slightly guilty smile Henrik"
