The solo concertos for violin and viola are works that combine Holmboe’s own purist Nordic style with a huge declaration of love for the wild and dancing eastern European folk music.

Holmboe’s Concerto for Orchestra (composed in his youth in1929) has never been performed before and all three works are world premiere recordings.

“'Concertos' is an excellent place to start a collection of Holmboe's music, a path that all true music lovers should take unhesitatingly...the quality playing of the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and two fine soloists, this disc, even with the sub-hour running time, adds up to a must-have.”

Gramophone Magazine

July 2013

“That this is one the finest viola concertos ever penned I have not the slightest doubt, and it is thrown off with dazzling virtuosity by Tomter and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra”
