The Complete Organ Works

Dietrich Buxtehude

This acclaimed recording series of the complete organ works of Dietrich Buxtehude (c. 1637-1707) offers a unique musical journey in the footsteps of the Danish-German Baroque master. Organist Bine Bryndorf explores Buxtehude’s inventive stylus phantasticus through the beautiful sound of five historic organs around the Baltic area, beginning in the composer’s native town of Elsinore, and ending in Lübeck, where his successor J.S. Bach famously went to experience the art of the ageing organ legend.


"Bryndorf proves an elegant stylist, using the full range of the instruments. Impressive!"
 Classic FM

"Bine Bryndorf’s excellent taste in registration, articulation and sense of musical line really illuminate the music from within ... Highly recommended."  BBC Music Magazine

Sounds Like You

Bent Sørensen | Peter Asmussen

Bent Sørensen’s work Sounds Like You, with text by playwright Peter Asmussen, is a coupling of music and theatre, of orchestral work and drama, or in the composer’s own words: a theatrical play that has become an orchestral work and vice versa. The piece was commissioned by DR (Danish Broadcasting Corporation) in collaboration with the Bergen Festival and is here recorded in a live performance by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, two actors and a selection of singers from the Danish National Vocal Ensemble under Thomas Dausgaard. On the CD, Sounds Like You is combined with Intermezzi, a five-movement suite for two mezzo-sopranos and orchestra, based on Sørensen’s and Asmussen’s opera Under the Sky.

Organ Works

Bruhns & Scheidemann

This recording features a collection of magnificent pieces from one of the golden ages of organ music, “the North German School” of the seventeenth century, which also had ramifications in Scandinavia. Five early pieces by Heinrich Scheidemann and six by his successor Nicolaus Bruhns, recorded by Professor Bine Bryndorf, offer imaginatively virtuosic playing and fervent organ chorales that make use of the whole technical and expressive range of the unique Raphaëlis Baroque organ in Roskilde Cathedral.

Carl Nielsen

Carl Nielsen's vivid comedy opera ”Maskarade has enjoyed a natural status as Denmark's national opera ever since its first performance at the Royal Danish Opera in 1906. On this recording, Nielsen expert Michael Schønwandt leads a sparkling cast of today’s finest Nielsen singers and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra through the delightful yet stirring comedy plot. Recorded in the ideal acoustic of DR Koncerthuset, this is the 21st century’s first studio recording of Nielsen’s much-loved opera, appropriately released to celebrate the Danish composer’s 150th anniversary.

The Symphonies & Concertos

Carl Nielsen

This box set collects the acclaimed live recording series of Nielsen’s complete symphonies and concertos by the New York Philhamonic, Music Director Alan Gilbert, and soloists Nikolaj Znaider, Robert Langevin, and Anthony McGill. Raised in the Danish countryside as the son of a poor folk musician, Carl Nielsen possessed indomitable courage and infinite curiosity: qualities that helped him develop into one of the greatest symphonists of the 20th century and eventually Denmark’s national composer.

Five Danish Piano Trios

Nørholm, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Hvidtfelt-Nielsen, Hegaard, Koch

A special Nordic blend of lightness and melancholy is shared by the five piano trios on this CD, although it is indeed five highly individual composers that are presented here by prize-winning Ismena Trio. The listener is taken from Svend Hvidtfelt Nielsen’s dynamic inwardness through Jesper Koch’s elegance and Lars Hegaard’s sound-objects to Ib Nørholm’s masterly, rigorous expression and Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s no less rigorously controlled yet more surprising exchanges of opinions between the instruments.
