Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
For those who have not been following this important series and are unfamiliar with Holmboe, his music is tonal (albeit, it's an extended tonality, highly dissonant at times) and written in a neoclassical style with an emphasis on technique - rhythm, counterpoint, form, et cetera.

Dacapo is pleased to present this new Holmboe world premiere recording with another first-class Scandinavian orchestra and two first class Nordic string soloists, Lars Anders Tomter and Swedish Erik Heide. Vagn Holmboe's solo concertos for violin and viola are works that combine the composer's own purist Nordic style with a huge declaration of love for the wild, dancing eastern European folk music that captivated him throughout his life. This recording also offers Holmboe's youth work Concerto for Orchestra from 1929, which has never even been performed before!
