Ensemble MidtVest

Hans Abrahamsen (b. 1952), who received the Royal Philharmonic Society Award in 2015 and the Grawemeyer Award in 2016, is a unique voice in Nordic music. On this album, two of his earliest works bear witness to the composer’s strong ideal of a new, simple and objective kind of music. In Landscapes , Abrahamsen rediscovers expressiveness by peeling away superfluous complexity, while the lyricism of Walden rests on minutely controlled minimalism. The recording by Ensemble MidtVest also presents two transcriptions of music by Schumann and Ravel, composers who have inspired Abrahamsen with their naivistic and poetic musical universes.

“Hans Abrahamsen’s music is having a moment in the spotlight, and this is another excellent contribution from the Ensemble MidtVest” BBC Music Magazine, December 2016 ****

Trio con Brio Copenhagen

This new release boasts three of Denmark’s greatest contemporary composers. Sørensen, Nørgård and Abrahamsen have all created new forms of musical expression that manage to renew a deep romantic yearning of the intangible and mysterious.

The Trio con Brio Copenhagen are a superlative and unique group, highly praised for their sensitivity and interpretation of ‘new’ music - Classic FM Magazine wrote of them: ‘the Copenhagen players go the full distance with playing of skin-rippling sensitivity’.

“The piano trio in Denmark is alive and well, judging from this new release by Trio Con Brio Copenhagen, which shows this technically exacting medium in a varied perspective.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2013

Alpha: Bolette Roe (recorder), Peter Navarro-Alonso (saxophone) & David Hildebrandt (percussion)

Denmark’s four leading composers – Poul Ruders, Per Nørgård, Bent Sørensen and Hans Abrahamsen - have allowed the experimental trio Alpha to take their music behind the looking glass and let their works re-emerge in the trio’s very own sound world. Played and recorded entirely by heart, Alpha’s close encounter with the musical essences of seven different works seems to reveal the form and richness of each composer’s imagination in a new magical reflection.

“Alpha's playing is as secure in soloistic as in ensemble terms, and it has been caught to ideal effect in the warmly atmospheric acoustic of Hørsholm Church.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2014
