Notes & Reviews:

Here is how our author describes Jensen's work: "He towers above most of his colleagues, not only in wealth of invention, thematic coherence, and phenomenal orchestration, but especially in his mastery of nuance and his far-reaching control of the harmonic process. Hardly any of his contemporaries can match his masterly handling of modulation."

Listeners coming to the orchestral music of Ludvig Jensen for the first time will be completely taken aback by the quality of this little known Norwegian composer’s music. All of the tools of the romantic composer’s trade are evident in abundance, and cpo has given us over two hours of his beautiful and thrilling music on this new two CD set. ... read more ...

MusicWeb International, January 2013
Irgens-Jensen's music stands at the confluence of Brahms and Grieg with an accent on light-filled textures and adroitly calculated orchestration...The performances seem totally dedicated and exciting. The documentation is good and pretty extensive. The recording quality is good. No obstacles here to discovering how a pastoral nationalist produced music that remained vibrant well into the twentieth century.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
I listened right through all two hours of this CPO program happily enjoying every minute of it. The composer's personality is consistent - he never seems to be imitating anyone else or straining for effect or trying to be something he's not or sullying his music with exoticism or impurities or fads. It's impossible not to be delighted with music like this that simply overflows with so much honesty and beauty.
