Ensemble MidtVest

Even in its most expressive passages, the music of Peter Bruun (b. 1968) owns an innocence in tone that normally belongs to childhood; an innocence that is more common in folk music or pop songs, but one which Peter Bruun grafts on to chamber music by maintaining an intensity and energy of expression that few composers have at their disposal. This album presents four of Bruun’s most evocative chamber works in world premiere recordings by Danish Ensemble MidtVest.

Peter Bruun’s background is in the ‘rhythmic’ genres. In 1989 he began studying composition with Niels Marthinsen, and at the same time studied philosophy at the university. In 1991-1997 he trained as a composer and music teacher at the Royal Academy of Music in Århus. His composition teachers there were Karl Aage Rasmussen and Per Nørgård. Peter Bruun has mainly composed vocal music and works for small ensembles. He also teaches music theory at the Academy in Århus.

In 2008 Peter Bruun recieved the Nordic Council Music Prize for the successful opera MIKI Alone written for Figura Ensemble. Beforehand Peter Bruun has received the National Arts Foundation three-year grant (1996) and Wilhelm Hansen Composer Prize (2000).

More than anything else, this is music inspired by highly evocative texts: Poems by Hans Christian Andersen; the Psalms of the Bible, and ancient poetry worshipping the Sun.

Frode Andersen & Helene Gjerris

Esbjerg Ensemble, Petter Sundkvist

Peter Bruun (b. 1968) is one of the most distinctive and exciting voices in his generation of Danish composers. His sense of timbre and sonority is highly sensual as appears in these three works witnessing the composer’s strong fascination with the ocean.

Eva Østergaard (flute)

The distinctive soundscape of this CD stems from the unique church interior at Løgumkloster in the south of Jutland, Denmark. Beneath the high vaulting, in the cloisters and in the small hidden spaces of the abbey, the flautist Eva Østergaard (b. 1966) has recorded a series of layers of sounds on flutes of all sizes from piccolo to bass. The music was written specifically for Eva, the church and this CD by five Danish composers, all of whom explore the remotest reaches of the instruments and the building.
