Image Violin Concerto & Etudes
Knudaage Riisager (1897-1974) holds a special place in Danish music, enriching it with an extra dimension of spirituality and pithiness. Aarhus Symphony Orchestra and conductor Andreas Delfs here present two key works in Riisager’s catalogue, one of which clearly represented a turning point in his output, namely his orchestral reworking of a selection of Carl Czerny’s piano etudes for his and Harald Lander’s ballet Etudes. The other heralded a stylistic change and ranks as a highly personal contribution to the concerto genre – Riisager’s Violin Concerto is played here by Danish violinist Ian van Rensburg.

Image Complete Works for Violin and Piano Vol. 2
In the veritable musical frenzy that struck Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) near the end of his life, he composed several violin sonatas – a genre he had not paid much attention to since
his early days. In this second in a series of three recordings presenting Langgaard’s complete works for violin and piano the award-winning violinist Gunvor Sihm and the Langgaard expert Berit Johansen Tange perform the Violin Sonata No. 1, composed in the course of four days in mid-June – when Langgaard was vacationing in Southern Sweden, and Langgaard’s last work for violin, the Andante religioso, in addition to the Sunday
Sonata, one of Langgaard’s most bizarre and unpredictable compositions.

Rued Langgaard – Symphonies Nos. 2 & 6 including Jacob Gade's Tango Jalousie

Rued Langgaard (1893–1952) was the major Danish late-Romantic composer who did not
gain recognition in his mother country. His greatest successes took place in Germany and Austria, where his Symphonies Nos. 2 and 6 were met with considerable acclaim. Back
home, he never received that kind of backing. He died a careworn and despairing individual. On this recording with one of the world’s leading orchestras, the traditionconscious Vienna Philharmonic, one is therefore able to hear Langgaard's music 'return
home' to a central European musical culture. At the same time things were going swimmingly for his colleague Jacob Gade (1879–1963) whose Tango Jalousie has become the absolutely most frequently played piece of Danish music for almost a century

Illustrating the development of the ‘universe of the Northern mind’ as well as early influences by both Bach and Stravinsky, the acclaimed pianist Niklas Sivelovpresents a unique portrait of Norgard’searliest musical thinking, including world premiere recordings of the Sonata determinata, Miniature Concerto G Major and Trifoglio.

Per Nørgård is one of the most frequently played composers of his generation. He has written more than 400 works in all genres and inspired innumerable colleagues in Denmark and abroad. This album presents all of Nørgård’s music for the Oscarwinning Babette’s Feast film version by Gabriel Axel of Karen Blixen’s short story – not just the snatches of it one can hear in the film. One can also get to know the hypnotic Spell, the ripples and bubbles in Whirl’s World and Trio Breve, which according to the composer himself are to be regarded as three as short expressive phrases – dream-like pictures – that change between light and dark, fast and slow but with introvert melodic features in common.

During the last two decades of the nineteenth century, the generation of Danish composers born in the 1860s started to make an impact. Among them, Fini Henriques, who had a special gift for beautiful, well-shaped melodies, and his popularity rested firmly on a generous output of single pieces, usually strung together in collections such as those presented here. Billedbogen (The Picture Book) is a collection for children and proved one of his absolute bull’s eyes, whereas Erotik (Eroticism) and Melodiske profiler (Silhouettes) see the composer exploring the world of adult life. Henriques’s best works maintain a high level with their honesty and that brilliant touch which few of his contemporaries could rival.

During the last two decades of the 19th century, the generation of Danish composers born in the 1860s started to make an impact. Among them was Fini Henriques, who also had a veritable soloist career as a violin virtuoso and became one of best-known Danes of his age, appealing to virtually everyone, both high and low. Johannes Søe Hansen and Christina Bjørkøe explore here his shorter pieces for violin and piano, both individual pieces and those in the collections Kleine bunte Reihe and Novelletter (Novelettes). Short pieces with a sharp characterisation – works with charm, warm-heartedness and gravity.

The prizewinning Copenhagen Piano Quartet presents works by composers cosmopolitan and conservative, but each brimming with charm. German-born Friedrich Kuhlau declared his Piano Quartet No. 3 ‘my best to date’, speaking of a large-scale work of drama offset by grace and highlighting the composer’s contrapuntal gift. A century later, the C minor quartet by the ‘Danish Saint-Saëns’ Otto Malling presents a perfect picture of this master craftsman’s clarity and concision while showing tantalizing signs of his sensuality too.

Included is what some consider the first Danish violin sonata in the Romantic style, a work that glances towards the composer’s idol Beethoven but contains plenty of individual spice and allure. It is followed by sonatas in all but name, the Trois Duos brillants from late in Kuhlau’s career. They are brilliant, as the title suggests – three varied, evocative snapshots of the great cosmopolitan of Denmark’s Golden Age.

Danish composer Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen (1932–2016) wrote string quartets throughout his life. Fourteen in all; the first three dating from 1959, the last ones from 2013.
Launching its complete cycle of Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s string quartets, the Nordic String Quartet here presents the first six quartets: Honesty meets schoolboy pranks, obstinacy meets doubt, yes meets no – Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s string quartets are full of such clashes.

The viola occupies a special place in the psyche of musicians and composers. It is an instrument of mystery, soulfulness and even of protest and revolt. Rafaell Altino, principal viola of the Odense Symphony Orchestra, presents this exploration of his instrument’s power and possibilities as realised by six leading Danish composers. Some explore the viola as a tool for sound production while others relish what its distinctive also singing voice does to melodies. The results are as touching and warm as they are fearsome and defiant.

Gade’s greatest successes, not only in his native Denmark but throughout Europe, where Elverskud was performed several hundred times, often conducted by Gade himself. Gade was especially admired in Germany, and on this album, Elverskud is not only played on period instruments for the first time but is also sung for the first time with the German text that brought the work international fame. here the cantata is put together with Gade’s breakthrough as an a capella composer, Fu¨nf Gesa¨nge from 1846, also in German.

The idea of building great music from modest or fragmentary means
has characterized the work of Nordic composers for generations.
In Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen’s music, that idea finds a particularly exquisite and absolutely contemporary expression. In Toccata the music glances towards a filmic chase-down, whereas Nielsen in Ophelia Dances claims to ‘hear the dancing’ of that fragile character from Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The album concludes with Nielsen’s single-movement symphony, Symphony No. 3, which sets in motion a cumulative journey upwards from low to high: a symphonic Tower of Babel, reaching for the heavens.

The research on the musical cultures of faraway countries left its mark on Poul Rovsing Olsen's (1922-82) oeuvre. He aimed at clarity and substance, and by fusing elements from the Occidental and Oriental traditions he developed a
personal musical idiom that was unusual in Danish music. Poul Rovsing Olsen himself said that it was his dream “to make music as direct as possible, to bring it closer to the listener”. This CD features his last composition A Dream in Violet
and four world premiere recordings of his music for voice and instruments,
including The Planets, based on a block book from the 15th century.

On this CD you meet Worsaae in two works: For both Wesenheit ab Wesenheit (2011) and WaWV (2014) Worsaae found inspiration in poems by the German prisoner Jörg Meyer, who during the late 70’s was confined to isolation in a Danish prison.

Reflecting our own time, this is a drama of a great artist lost between outward duties and inner fragility: from a passionate youth to an old age of mysticism, violence and melancholy. Gesualdo’s own madrigals, fused into the score, contribute to a thrilling universe of pain and beauty.

This CD marks the conclusion of Søren Nils Eichberg’s residency with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra – a fruitful cooperation that has resulted in a handful of large-scale works, born of Eichberg’s keen exploration of the orchestra. In place of the thematic formality of its predecessor, Symphony No. 3 looks far out, asking looming existential questions to which there aren’t always clear answers. As a counterweight, the even more symphonic ‘concerto for orchestra’ Morpheus revels in color and effect, bringing a sense of joy and discovery to the music.

The music and poetry of Pietism offers a beauty that hardly any form of Lutheran religiosity can rival. It is rarely found more radiantly beautiful than in the great collection of hymns Troens rare Klenodie (The Rare Treasure of Faith) by the most important Danish representative of the Pietist movement, Hans Adolph Brorson (1694-1764). The melodies of the sacred Pietist songs are, in their strongly affective nature, in perfect accordance with the fervent and sensual mode of expression found in the texts. Selected from J.A. Freylinghausen’s Geistreiches Gesangbuch and among J.S. Bach’s contributions to Schemelli’s Musicalisches Gesangbuch those melodies are to be heard here, along with related galant music for flute, harpsichord and guitar from the court of the Pietist Danish King Christian VI.

Image Orchestral Works, Vol. 1
Not known to many today, Svend Erik Tarp (1908-1994) was one of the most prominent Danish composers of his time, boasting a large and versatile body of work which more or less has survived in obscurity. This series now sheds new light on a selection of Tarp’s orchestral works, opening chronologically with some suites, overtures, and two small concertos. These are early and charming works that show a development from the elegant and easily accessible towards a more clarified neoclassicist style, which later became one of Tarp’s hallmarks. This is the first of three albums in the set which will focus on Tarp’s orchestral music. The succeeding volumes will contain Tarp’s Symphonies 1-3 and his Piano Concerto. The series is chronologically built, illustrating Tarp’s development as a composer, starting with his elegant music, inspired by French impressionism. The two soloists on this release are both concertmasters of Aarhus Symphony Orchestra.

Kristian Leth: »Det er selve musikken, der interesserer mig«

Den 6. februar udkommer albummet Vildtvoksende fantasier · Musikhistorier for børn – en samling af 13 musikstykker udvalgt af forfatter og musiker Kristian Leth. Til hvert stykke musik har Leth digtet en fortælling, som kan give nye, forundelige indgange til musikken for både børn og voksne.
»Hør, noget magisk skal til at ske. Men vi ved ikke hvad det er.«
Sådan begynder den første af Kristian Leths 13 små fortællinger skrevet til 13 stykker musik. Den aktuelle historie knytter sig til Poul Ruders' værk Hviskende fra 1983, og med nysgerrighed inviterer Leth børn og deres forældre til at lytte til musikken med udgangspunkt i hans fortællinger.

Kristian Leth har frit kunnet udvælge 13 nyere værker fra pladeselskabet Dacapos bagkatalog, og det er der kommet udgivelsen Vildtvoksende fantasier ud af. Albummet rummer musik af de danske komponister Per Nørgård, Poul Ruders, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Rued Langgaard og Vagn Holmboe. Om udvælgelsen af de 13 værker fortæller Kristian Leth:
»Jamen det er selve musikken, der interesserer mig. Det er hvordan den lyder, hvad den gør, hvad den undersøger. Det er jo god musik! Og den kræver øvelse at lytte på. Ligesom digte kræver øvelse at læse.«

Teksterne giver lytteren noget at lytte efter
Med udgivelsen inviterer Kristian Leth til en ny måde at lytte til ny musik. Hver fortælling, som kan læses på en tilhørende plakat, hører sammen med et særligt stykke musik, som er skabt til at vække fantasien hos nysgerrige lyttere i alle aldre. Leth bruger historierne til at åbne musikken op:
»Med teksterne har jeg forsøgt at give lytterne noget enkelt at lytte efter. Noget der ikke er svært og skal forstås, et par stikord om musikken, som man kan fokusere på. Før man ved af det, lytter man til klassisk musik.«

Albummet kan således bruges af både børn og forældre, der sammen vil ud på en forunderlig rejse i musik, lyde og ord, men også i undervisningssammenhænge, hvor de små fortællinger kan danne grobund for snakke og indføringer i musikken.

Børns musikalitet er mere åben – og mere konsekvent
Vildtvoksende fantasier samler 13 stykker dansk musik skrevet mellem 1916 og 2004, og rummer således nyere klassisk musik, der for nogle er ukendt territorium. Udvalget og fortællingerne er skabt med børn for øje, men Leth understreger også, at:
»Børns musikalitet er mere åben – og mere konsekvent på samme tid – end voksnes. Så de vil nok ikke være lige så skræmte, som mange voksne er, der aldrig har hørt moderne kompositionsmusik. De vil have lettere ved at acceptere de anderledes lyde. Til gengæld vil de – ligeså fordomsfrit – også sige fra, hvis de synes det er kedeligt. Eller bare gå i gang med noget andet. Så teksterne og de tretten stykker musik er forhåbentlig et udvalg, der har en fortælling eller en stemning, som børn kan relatere til.«

In Carl Nielsen’s Three Motets, Renaissance polyphony and the composer’s more personal style are molded into something fresh and powerful; the Swedish Romantic composer Stenhammarsets Danish texts, while Holmboesets British border ballads. Everything about this album crosses borders of one kind or another!

‘The viola line [of Viola Concerto], with its edgy lyricism intensified by Ruders’s reworking, is wonderfully realised here by Lars Anders Tomter. Dacapo’s sound is vivid with terrific depth. A winner.’
– Gramophone 2018


“A tribute to inwardness, patience and beauty.” This is how the Danish composer Poul Ruders (b. 1949) described his Viola Concerto from 1994. The music has an almost Late Romantic expressive style and is played with rich, many-faceted feeling by the Norwegian viola virtuoso Lars Anders Tomter. In his Handel Variations (2009) Poul Ruders has composed no fewer than 90 variations on eight bars from Handel’s Water Music. The short variations grow together into a symphonic totality where the orchestral colours are constantly shifting and where Handel’s starting point develops into pure Ruders.
