Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

This recording marks the beginning of a new series devoted to previously unrecorded chamber works by the Danish composer Vagn Holmboe (1909-96). The music was written from the 1950s to the 1980s and ranges wide, all the way from the playful to the serious. Holmboe's inexhaustible wealth of ideas and his mixture of lightness and ingenuity run through all the works. As does his 'metamorphosis' technique, which makes the music breathe and grow like the Nordic landscape of which Holmboe felt himself to be a part.

American Record Guide
The music itself is lovely... Performances are impeccable...

Gramophone
The Quartetto for flute and string trio proves once again that musical conversation is Holmboe's strong point, as it is for the excellent players on this cleanly recorded disc.

Catholic News Agency
this CD is a revelatory introduction to the broad range of [Vagn Holmboe's] music. The playfulness of "Primavera" is a nice contrast to the seriousness of "Ballata." These are not simply shavings from the master's bench; each work stands as an integral jewel. This will be a mandatory purchase for Homlboe fans.
