Biography in danish

Pernille Petersen (f. 1983) havde sin anmelderroste debutkoncert fra solistklassen på Det Fynske Musikkonservatorium i september 2010. Koncerten markerede afslutningen på omfattende studier i Danmark og Sverige hos Nikolaj Ronimus, Dan Laurin og Lene Langballe.

Siden da har hun gjort sig bemærket som prisvinder og en udforskende musiker, senest som solist ved en lang række koncerter med Concerto Copenhagen med koncerter af Bach, Telemann og Vivaldi. Repertoiret har base i den tidlige musik og den nye kompositionsmusik, altid med et unikt tvist af international eller historisk bevidsthed. Blandt de mange projekter hun har kastet sig ud i kan nævnes Izar Melting Pot Ensemble; et møde mellem arabisk og vestlig middelalder, Kottos; progressiv folk og ny musik, sceniske forestillinger med Woodpeckers Recorder Quartet samt ekstrovert barokkabaret med den unge gruppe Bastard Barock. Hun medvirker desuden i Lady Baroque, Trio Nordic Block og In Consort.

Pernille Petersen udgav i november 2010 sin første solo plade “Sonatas by Mr. Castrucci & Mr. Geminiani” med Gunnhild Tønder, cembalo og Tom Pitt, cello på ClassicO. En plade der fik stor international opmærksomhed som første udgivelse af en unik samling engelske baroksonater. I november 2014 udkommer “Busy Bees and Birds” med ny musik af Mogens Christensen på DaCapo Records.

Pernille Petersen udmærkede sig tidligt og vandt i 2000 guldmedalje ved Berlingske Tidenes Klassiske Musikkonkurrence. I november 2009 vandt hun som den første dansker nogensinde den prestigefyldte Moeck/SRP Solo Recorder Competition i London. I maj 2010 vandt hun Prijs Mieke Van Weddingen i Mechelen, Belgien og blev også tildelt publikumsprisen ved samme lejlighed. Sammen med Bastard Barock vandt hun i juni 2014 “Ear-ly” en konkurrence for unge tidlig musik ensembler – en konkurrence hun allerede i 2010, sammen med Woodpeckers Recorder Quartet, havde taget publikumsprisen i.

Pernille Petersen har blandt andet modtaget Odd Fellow Logerne i Odenses Rejselegat, Børge Schrøder og hustru Herta Finnerups Musiklegat og Léonie Sonnings Musikfonds stipendiat.
