Notes & Reviews:

On this new Dacapo Open Space release, the acclaimed Danish Horn Trio brilliantly displays three of today's leading Danish composers' work. The composers clearly nod to the genre's legacy by Brahms and Ligeti and are profoundly inspired by the transparent soundscape of the fundamentally different instruments.
"Remarkably challenging and imaginative, played with extraordinary concentration" Gramophone

Gramophone
To those familiar with Pelle Gudmundsen Holmgreen's work, the pared-down abstraction of Near Still Distant Still will come as no surprise. Here is music that derives maximum effect from minimal means in a non-glamorous yet fascinating dialect of minimalism. More orientated towards conventional performative virtuosity and audience expectation is the Horn Trio of Søren Nils Eichberg, a new figure to me. From moment to moment this is highly engaging music in a polystylistic Messiaen to MacMillan way. On the broader level it satisfies less than the other two pieces, precisely because it seems unable to resist the urge to please.

American Record Guide
The 19-minute Horn Trio... is a fascinating and powerful piece.
