Ensemble Nordlys has been described as “a powerful unit of strong individuals” and their playing as “a profoundly moving and heartfelt experience”.

Christine Pryn is the artistic director and founder of Rudersdal Sommerkoncerter, a summer festival beautifully located 20 km from Copenhagen. The concerts take place in different venues including castles and churches as well as the more untraditional ones such as a railway station, a car museum and a parking garage.
Rudersdal Sommerkoncerter programmes a wide repertoire from early music through the classical and romantic period to contemporary music and world music. Every year a festival composer is appointed who will have several performances during the festival.
Cultural exchange is a high priority for Rudersdal Sommerkoncerter and projects have included artists from the USA, Norway and Poland. The board members have decided to focus in particular on Polish music and founded the Danish-Polish Friendship Prize that is every year awarded to a Polish musician or ensemble.
