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.

“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.”

Gramophone Magazine

April 2013

“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.”
