Notes & Reviews:

Expedition Audio Recommended
This Dacapo CD presents the world premiere recording of symphonies nos. 1 and 2 by Danish-German composer Søren Nils Eichberg performed by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra... Eichberg's music is immediately appealing, colorful, and irresistibly powerful... Highly illustrative and evocative, both works will have a somewhat cinematic feeling for many listeners. ... read more ...

Eichberg is the first composer in residence in the history of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. This CD presents the premiere recordings of his Symphony No. 1 and Symphony No. 2 that was first performed by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and concludes an explosive phase of creativity in the young composer.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Soren Nils Eichberg turns 40 this year; he is self-taught as a composer, and he learned orchestration through conducting. He is the Danish National Symphony's first composerin- residence. These two big-boned symphonies (Before Heaven, Before Earth and If We Flung Ourselves into the Flames) are dense and deadly serious. He has some apparent talent. Playing and sound are commendable; notes in English and Danish.
