Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This disc comprises Danish music from the Romantic period. The first six pieces are by father and son Heinrik and Frederick Rung. Composer Søffren Degen was a great developer of the guitar, creating both a seven-stringed and heptachord version. Playing the mandolin for this recording is Tove Flensborg, Denmark's leading performer on the instrument.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
The composers are all unknown to me, all Danish romantics. Many pieces have plenty of harmonic invention. Henrik Rung, whose music I find the most charming of the lot. He later took up mandolin and viola d'amore. He taught his son, Frederik, the same instruments. Flensborg is the dominant voice here, musically and technically. She phrases beautifully and has a consistently clear and beautiful tone. Buhl-Mortensen's part is mostly simple accompaniment. His playing is nicely supportive and never obtrusive. I described his playing as smooth and graceful. That pretty much describes this as well. It will be of interest to mandolin lovers.
