Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Danish composer Vagn Holmboe (1909-96) wrote two beautiful sonatas and a number of solo pieces as well as duets for guitar and other instruments, combining his love of simple, transparent structures and organic musical development with the folklore of foreign cultures and his own Nordic roots. "A composer of genuine vision... whose standards of craftsmanship were simply second to none." (ClassicsToday.com)

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
I was delighted to find this well-stuffed CD of his music in excellent performances. It's beautifully crafted music, with expressive passages balanced with witty ones. It's a beautifully balanced work, a real duo rather than a lead and an accompaniment, and Sivebaek and Hansen make a convincing case for it. The settings are beautiful, and the guitar part is made into a counter line rather than a simple accompaniment. Sivebaek and his colleagues play this music with love and expertise. I'm happy to have discovered it, and I'll return to this disc often.
