Born and raised on the Island of Bornholm, Bjarke Mogensen quickly made a name for himself as an internationally acclaimed accordion virtuoso and as a versatile musician with a keen ear for different styles. At the age of 13 he made his solo debut with the Munich Symphony Orchestra in a German TV broadcast with millions of viewers. Since then a great curiosity and search for new sounds and expressions has taken him on musical paths where few other musicians have ventured before as a highly sought-after soloist in the classical music world.
Bjarke Mogensen received several international awards and recognitions such as the P2 Radio Chamber Music Competition, The Almere International Chamber Music Competition and The Arts Desk ‘Album of the Year’ (2013). He took 1st prize in the European Broadcast Unions “New Talent” competition in Bratislava and a few years later Mogensen received the Danish Music Critics Artist Prize. All firsts for an accordionist.
