Notes & Reviews:

Danish composer and violinist Birgitte Alsted (b. 1942) has been a pioneer of electro-acoustic music, finding the main inspiration for her music in literature and poetry. This album presents four of Alsted's key works for the first time on CD with the dramatic sound collage Agnete's Laughter, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen, as the captivating title work.
