Peter Rosendal has released 10 albums in his own name, with a 11th album in the making.
He was the winner of both the "Jazz Release of the Year" and DJBFA's "Composer of the Year" at the Danish Music Awards in 2008, for the albums 'Tide' and 'Solo' respectively.
Rosendal's fusion band OLD MAN'S KITCHEN was awarded by the Danish Art Council in 2012 as one of the most interesting releases that year.
Selected quotes from reviews:
"Peter Rosendal is one of those composers that inspires a kaleidoscopic explosion of thoughts, emotions, inspirations and epiphanies. He creates music that hits both head and heart and he achieves this with methods both complex and unconventional. His sound is very difficult to describe yet rings with an abounding clarity. It is music that should be filed under Something Different and it is music that is as embraceable as a pop song. He has been at it for years, and his 2014 release Love for Snail might be his best yet."
