Klaus Schønning releases mammoth work!
With a mastodon release of six albums, Klaus Schønning rounds off in 2024 after 45 years as an album artist.

From January 2024 and the following six months, the musician Klaus Schønning will publish the mammoth work ’Music in Colors’. The work consists of six albums, which have the subtitles ’Yellow’, ’Orange’, ’Red’, ’Green’, ’Blue’ and ’Purple’. Each album consists of 9 instrumental tracks, giving a total of 54 tracks and a playing time of just around 4 hours.
At the same time, ’Music in Colors’ will be Klaus Schønning’s last release.

’Music in Colors’ is built on a universal and timeless idea, where the nuances of colors inspire music. And vice versa, where the expression of colors depicts the music’s components of tones, moods and timbres. Music reflects colors and colors reflect music. A fundamental factor that can be communicated and understood by everyone and that can be perceived individually and subjectively by the listener.
The music is harmonious and melodic and moves through varied symphonic soundscapes in dynamic progressions. Large complex synthesizer arrangements create a completely distinctive and highly expressive musical expression that Klaus has developed over the years.
In June 2024, when the last part of ’Music in Colors’ is published, Klaus Schønning turns 70.
And then it is time to hold back on publications and reduce the activities.
Klaus will probably continue to play and compose, as it is a big part of his persona. But it will be on another level, and there will most likely be no more album releases.

Klaus Schønning made his debut in 1979 with the record ’Lydglimt’ (glimpses of sound), which is recognized as one of the cornerstones of Danish modern instrumental music. Since then, Klaus has released 35 solo albums, a number of EPs and participated in countless records with other artists.Klaus has performed concerts all over the country, of which the concerts in The Tivoli Gardens are still remembered by many more than 30 years later.
