The Keyboard Player

Kristian Marius Andersen has been the regular accompanist for Herning Boys Choir since he came to Denmark in 2005.

Kristian was raised in England and trained at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. In 2005 he moved to Denmark and continued his training at the Royal Music Academy in Aarhus, where he graduated as a soloist in 2012. After Kristian’s debut concert, a reviewer wrote that he was “One of his generation’s most notable organists”.

Kristian Marius Andersen has a substantial career, both as an organ soloist and as a jazz Hammond organ player. No matter the instrument, Kristian is esteemed for his great musicality, his sparkling technical abundance and, not withstanding, as an incredible improviser.

Kristian and his unusual talent were portrayed in the documentary Tangentspilleren (The Keyboard Player), which deservedly was the most watched Danish documentary in 2013.
