Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Throughout his long life, Danish composer Vagn Holmboe (1909-96) wrote music with a Zen-like balance between intellect and nature. He saw chamber music as an ideal world and expressed himself in a multiplicity of ensembles, forms and formats - as shown in this acclaimed CD series featuring the Danish group Ensemble MidtVest.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
It tends to be light in texture and free in format, with a somewhat neo-classical bent. We have here DaCapo's Volume 2 of his chamber music played by a highly competent Danish group. The main emphasis here is on the winds. Eco is a recent piece from 1991, a clarinet trio with cello and piano. This is followed by five Aspects from 1957 for wind quintet. Jonathan Slaatto does a fine job on the 1968-9 Solo Cello Sonata. This is followed by Quartetto Medico of 1956 for flute, oboe, clarinet and piano, a five movement work written for amateurs. Finally, the 1973 Sextet is for flute, clarinet, bassoon, and string trio. These are all relatively short works. The disc is a welcome addition to the large backlog of this fine composer's music.
