After studying in Germany and England, Gregers Brinch's compositional striving intensified, helping him achieve a greater sense of freedom and the capacity to embrace the demands of his inspirations. His in-depth study of intervals in particular saw him develop a keen interest in the role of Major and Minor in Classical diatonic tonality. This, in turn, has led him to view classical music completely afresh.
He increasingly experienced the capacity of music to conjure the qualitites of another place and time within the soul of the listener. Brinch's native Denmark provides a feeling for a wide, natural landscape, including the coastline with long beaches and rolling sand dunes that were the joy of his childhood. These find their way into the music and are the backdrop to a wide spectrum of feelings that feature in his music.
