Søren Hyldgaard

Søren Hyldgaard (born 6 August 1962 in Copenhagen, Denmark) is a Danish film composer, also known for a number of New Age albums. Versatility is the keyword in describing the prolific musical talents of Søren Hyldgaard. He is wearing at least three hats and seems just as comfortable juggling the nuts-and-bolt challenges of composing the seminal epic film score as he is writing for the concert hall — namely symphonic, chamber, concert bands and brass ensembles. Despite his impressive and diverse output, Søren Hyldgaard is basically self-taught in music; a fact that most likely has conveyed the composer's liberal and versatile attitude towards the many styles and genres in contemporary music. As a composer of meditational ‘New Age’ music, Søren Hyldgaard has published a string of albums with the Scandinavian label Fønix Musik. With more than 125,000 copies sold, Hyldgaard has earned both Silver and Platinum Discs for his classic new age album, “Flying Dreams”. Søren Hyldgaard also has received a prestigious artistic acknowledgement award for his achievements in film scoring, presented to him by The San Diego Film Commission in Southern California.
