Carambolage: Works for ensemble and voice by Axel Borup-Jorgensen (1924-2012) / Arhus Sinf.; Ars Nova Copenhagen

Notes & Reviews:

Axel Borup-Jørgensen (1924-1912) was a composer of details. Throughout his life he took a deep interest in sounds in all their complexity, fusing mixtures of rhythms, notes and timbres into totalities built up from minute details with perfectionist sensibility. However, even in his seemingly most fragmented works, the music is poetically grounded and Romantic in its expressiveness. This world premiere recording of four key works by Borup-Jørgensen combines two leading Danish ensembles, Århus Sinfonietta and Ars Nova Copenhagen.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Axel Borup-Jorgensen's compositions use small ensemble and voice. Winterelegie whispers and searches for its voice, both human and instrumental. Sound events are punctuated and often stand alone. The distinct plots on the figurative graph form a direct line of intention. Carambolage is for percussion, electric guitar, and piano.
