Notes & Reviews:
Svend Nielsen (b. 1937) is an important figure in Danish music. He has written an impressive body of work in the Romantic-Impressionist tradition, and as a composer he balances between the lyrical and the succinct. This CD features Svend Nielsen's most extensive vocal work Butterfly Valley, based on a famous sonnet cycle by the Danish poet Inger Christensen. It is poetic vocal chamber music that unfolds as a grand, sensual tour de force - a major work of contemporary Danish music.
