Notes & Reviews:

The three Danish composers Norgard, Sorensen and Abrahamsen have all created new, visionary forms of musical expression, while also managing to renew a deep Romantic yearning to contain the intangible and the mysterious. In this new recording, Trio con Brio Copenhagen displays a keen awareness of the dreamlike idiom of the three composers.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
Danish piano trios played by the Hong sisters, Soo-Jin and Soo-Kyung from Korea, with Danish pianist Jens Elvekjaer. The one by Bent Sorensen (b 1958) starts off with attacked notes in the strings. Hans Abrahamsen (b. 1952) gives us a dream of fate with fireworks, and Per Norgard (b. 1932) combines his Spell into one 15- minute movement that begins with hypnotic rhythms and continues with their emotional results. Trio con Brio is a fine group for this program, playing with poise and violence by turns and giving us an involvement in the proceedings. They are recorded in clear, warm sound that invites them to produce their world with beauty and gives us a program of fine new music that I am happy to recommend.
