Issued to celebrate the 80th Birthday of Per Nørgård in July 2012, this CD offers three of the composer's most captivating vocal works featuring the Danish National Vocal Ensemble conducted by Fredrik Malmberg. In marvellous musical landscapes, we encounter the composer in his most cosmic and prophetic vein, with the human voice as a catalyst of new awareness in both the musical and universal sense.

Gramophone Magazine

January 2013

“Listening to Per Nørgård's Libra, you wonder how a composer could write music that at once sounds so invitingly familiar and utterly mysterious...between the Danish National Vocal Ensemble's immaculate enunciation and Fredrik Malmberg's sensitive decrypting of Norgard's multiple meanings, his composition is revealed as being bold, beautiful and wise.”
