Some cultural offers during FLoC

A "minimal selection" compiled by Henning Christiansen on 4 July 2002

For art lovers

Museums in the city that you must see:
  • Danish National Gallery: Very interesting collections from different periods.
    Old dutch well represented, special exhibition with Cranach this summer.
    Small but very interesting section with Matisse, Braque, etc. including a cute Modigliani.
    ... for foreign visitors, the section on Danish "Golden Age" may be the most interesting.
  • The Hirschsprung Collection. Small museum not so far from the above.
    If you only have time for one museum, this is the one to choose.
    Go for Vilhelm Hammershøi if you are in a sombre mood, but do not miss Anna Ancher's pictures with sunlight - and other of the so-called Skagen painters. Danish impressionist Theodor Philipsen (you can easily find his paintings, he's very fond of cows)
  • Thorvaldsen's Museum. Museum for famous Danish sculpturer Bertel Thorvaldsen. If you have the chance, admire his works in the Copenhagen Cathedral (free organ music concerts every Saturday at noon).
Other museums: Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Ordrupgaard (impressive collection of French painters), Louisiana.

Beethoven lovers, look here:

One of Denmarks's currently most interesting interpreters of Beethoven's piano sonatas, Anne Øland, is working her way through a complete cycle of all sonatas in Tivoli's concert hall.
