Bo Holten is known for his work as both composer and conductor. He is especially acknowledged as an expert in early vocal polyphony and his list of works comprises more than 100 pieces.

Bo Holten is extrovert both as conductor and composer. At a time when experimental composition strategies and a new material consciousness pervade the new music, Bo Holten stubbornly insists on the tonal and the musical practice and creates from these a music of major importance and great integrity.

As composer, Bo Holten has expressed himself successfully across the genre spectrum, however, he seems particularly interested in opera and vocal music. His operas, including The Royal Physician’s Visit (2008) and Gesualdo - Shadows (2014) are some of the most acclaimed and performed Danish operas of recent times.
