Notes & Reviews:

The music of Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen is at its most affecting when it is at its most absurd like in the sinfonietta works on this recording by the composers longtime artistic accomplice Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen. The points of departure for the classically absurd PGH pieces on this album range from a red Skoda door, given to the composer by Athelas as a gift (Traffic), over randomly picked newspaper articles (Three Songs to Texts by Politiken) to general inspiration from Samuel Beckett (Repriser and Rerepriser) and Sren Kierkegaard (Og).
