Winter Cheer, Danish-Style

Last week’s Phillips after 5 –a Winter Fairy Tale inspired by Per Kirkeby‘s native Denmark–truly had what the Danes call “HYGGE.” Guests sipped aquavit, listened to jazz piano by Søren Møller and saxophone by Dick Oatts, and most of all enjoyed time with each other and with art. Ambassador Peter Taksøe-Jensen even came by with his spouse Gitte Wallin Pedersen to soak up the atmosphere. Next month, the Embassy of Denmark will be back for another Kirkeby-inspired evening, this time an “Arctic Expedition.”
