Notes & Reviews:

Peter Bruun (b. 1968) is one of the most distinctive and exciting voices in his generation of Danish composers. He is not afraid to express himself with simple, recognizable material, but he does so in very subtle ways. His sense of timbre and sonority is highly sensual as appears in these three works witnessing the composer's strong fascination with the ocean.

MusicWeb International
Gjerris is pure and magnetic here...Hers is a voice of silver and strength, and one I'd love to hear in Mahler. That said, the orchestra also shines, the music's valedictory air and faltering pulse superbly caught by the Dacapo engineers. This may not be an SACD, but the class and sophistication of this recording is very impressive indeed.

Allmusic.com
This Dacapo CD includes three multi-movement pieces for chamber ensemble, with mezzo-soprano added for one of them and accordion for another. They are all remarkable for the inventiveness and originality of their orchestration. Petter Sundkvist leads the Esbjerg Ensemble in precise, nuanced readings of the scores that enhance their poetic expressiveness. The sound is clean, atmospheric, and nicely ambient. This is a CD that should interest any fans of contemporary music.
