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

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.

Nørgård & Hind - Works for Piano


Hind, R:

Das Unenthüllte (2003) for violin and piano

Nørgård:

Unendlicher Empfang (1997) for 2 pianos

Nicolas Hodges (piano)

Remembering (1989) for solo piano

Stadier (2002) for solo piano

Achilles and the Tortoise (1983) for solo piano

Violin Sonata “The Secret Melody” (1993) for solo violin


Rolf Hind (piano) & David Alberman (violin)

The works on the CD Secret Melodies have exquisite poetic titles that could make anyone dream. At the same time this is music whose execution demands players equal to the challenge, with the major work Achilles and the Tortoise as one of the absolute pianistic trials of strength in contemporary music. But above all Nørgård’s music – at once esoteric and organic – offers experiences of a kind that seems to defy time and place.

“[Rolf Hind] is one of the rare examples of a musician who could be just as successful if he chose a career as a composer” The Independent

Percurama Percussion Ensemble, Gert Mortensen (conductor & arranger)

A Light Hour was originally written in 1986, but in 2008 Per Nørgård created this new through-composed version.

Nørgård: Der göttliche Tivoli (The Divine Circus)

Nørgård: Der göttliche Tivoli (The Divine Circus)


Bernd Gebhardt (bass-baritone), Fabienne Jost (soprano), Steffen Kubach (baritone), Jianeng Lu (tenor), Tadahiro Masujima (tenor), Sandra Rohrbach (mezzo-soprano), Simone Tschöke (contralto), Andrea Stadel (soprano), Daniel Szeili (tenor) & Hubert Wild (baritone)

Dorian Keilhack

Der göttliche Tivoli (The Divine Circus) is Per Nørgård’s (b. 1932) marvellous portrayal of the Swiss schizophrenic artist Adolf Wölfli (1864-1930).

It stands as a key work in contemporary Nordic music drama and in two acts presents two periods in Wölfli’s life; his harsh upbringing in Switzerland in the late 19th century and his confinement in an asylum, where Wölfli for more than 30 years produced an endless number of incredible artworks.

The encounter with Wölfli’s life and art became a significant turning point in Nørgård’s music, which led to a series of great works, all dealing with chaos and catastrophe, among them The Divine Circus.

The Divine Circus is here presented on disc for the first time in a live performance from Stadttheater Bern in 2008.

“...a powerfully effective piece, with a text compiled by the composer from a range of sources, and the largely declamatory vocal writing underpinned mostly by a formidable battery of percussion. There is enough in the music, and in the allusive visual and literary layers around it, to suggest it would have a real theatrical presence.” The Guardian, 18th February 2010 ***

Casper Schreiber

This CD is a testimony of the extraordinary meeting between a composer and his foremost vocal interpreter.

Danish mezzo-soprano Helene Gjerris explores six decades of vocal music by Per Nørgård in new instrumentations; music which reaches the darkest corners of the human mind and loaded with intense poetry by Allen Ginsberg, Rainer Maria Rilke, Arthur Rimbaud and Pär Lagerkvist.

“a reference disc for collectors of Nørgård and serious contemporary song, and performance, recording and presentation all do the music proud.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2013
