Riisager was a violin player himself and composed for the instrument throughout his career. This collection of his violin music demonstrates the composer's fascinating musical development, featuring student works as well as mature compositions with challenging harmonies in charming neo-Baroque forms.

Johannes Søe Hansen trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Music and is Concertmaster of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, a position he has held since 1992.

“Two sonatas give the disc ballast...No less impressive are the artistry and dedication lavished on the programme by all the performers.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2013

“Johannes Søe Hansen is very well teamed with Christina Bjørkøe and they make a fine case for the music. The other string players make a commendable ensemble in the Concertino.” MusicWeb International, 13th May 2013

Christina Bjørkøe (piano)

Au fond de la nuit


The Danish composer Poul Rovsing Olsen’s background was in the Danish-French tradition, and his works are typified by clear-cut rhythms, expressive melody lines and colourful tonal effects.

This world première recording of his dazzling Concerto pour Piano et Orchestre together with his two major orchestral works Variations Symphoniques and Au Fond de la Nuit features pianist Christina Bjørkøe accompanied by the Odense Symphony Orchestra and conductor Bo Holten.

“It is played with aplomb and audible relish, as are the couplings, by the Odense Symphony Orchestra, by the Odense Symphony Orchestra, superbly marshalled by Bo Holten. Dacapo's sound is excellent and the disc is a fine introduction to this composer.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2013

“Christina Bjørkøe is well-known for her recordings of Danish piano and chamber music. She handles the wide changes of tempo and mood in the Piano Concerto with great aplomb and subtlety...this disc will serve as a useful introduction to the composer’s works.” MusicWeb International, March 2013
