“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.”
“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.”
