Information: Niels Viggo Bentzon (1919-2000): Composer and much more. His musical career began with learning to play the piano and the organ. By the time Niels Viggo Bentzon took his degree as an organist in 1942, he had already written 19 works, most of which were for the piano. Bentzon left a most diverse output of more than 600 opus numbers. If one has a look at Niels Viggo Bentzon’s extensive life’s work, one quickly realises that the music for piano assumes a central role. This is not surprising: When presenting Bentzon the composer, one invariably has to mention Bentzon the pianist. When it comes to this artist, one can simply detect a predilection for the piano as musical medium.
