Anders Koppel grew up surrounded by music. His father, Herman D. Koppel, was one of the most significant Danish composers and pianists of his generation, and he shared his love of music with his children.

Koppel is widely known as founder of the successful rock band Savage Rose, founded in 1967. Together with his brother Thomas, he played with the band until 1974. Following this he formed Bazaar, a trio whose Middle Eastern and European folk-based performances anticipated the world music movement.

Koppel also has a prolific career as a film composer which began in the mid-1970s, and in the 1980s he became a much sought-after ballet composer. Since the early 1990s, he has worked primarily as a composer in the classical world. Influenced by jazz, rock and Latin American music, Koppel’s music is often highly virtuosic and many of his works feature challenging solo parts, as is evident in his many concertos.
