Notes & Reviews:

Axel Borup-Jørgensen (1924-2012) was a meticulous modernist who followed his own distinctive path. His works exude distinctive and intense nature mysticism. The five works presented here - including three world premiere recordings - span the most important period of the composer's artistic development, from Music for percussion and viola, op. 18 (1956) to his cathartic Periphrasis, op. 156, (first version, 1977) and all feature the full array of percussion instruments found in 20th c. music, bringing Borup-Jørgensen's exquisitely crafted sound universe to life. Standing at the center of this universe is Gert Mortensen, one of the world's leading scholars and performers of music for percussion. Mortensen's ensemble partners, representing some of Denmark's greatest musicians, including the incomparable Michala Petri (recorder), Tim Frederiksen (viola), The Percurama Percussion Ensemble, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra Brass Quintet and his regular duo partner, Prof. Qiao Jia (Duo Crossfire), ably match Mr. Mortensen's artistry.
