Notes & Reviews:

The composer Niels Marthinsen belongs to a generation that has grown up with comic books, superheroes and science fiction. He welcomes all of these phenomena into his symphonic music. This recording features his Snapshot Symphony, two of his special opera trailers and the ingenious concerto for three trombones and orchestra In the Shadow of the Bat - all in the hands of the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra conducted by Christian Lindberg.

American Record Guide
The big piece here is the three-movement... "a fantasy trip to exotic regions as Niels Marthinsen knows them from film, TV, and the Internet". The movement titles tell the tale. I ('Fiesta Mexicana') is colorful and energetic, II ('Arabian Nights') is sinuous and a bit disquieting, and III ('Great Fireworks in China') has a fast-slow-fast structure. The music is skillfully crafted... and requires no effort to enjoy.
