Sinfonietta Works

GregersDH

”Det er landvindinger for det danske koncertliv, når en symfoni som Klenaus indfinder sig. Uvante og spændende nyskabelser. Selvom musikken har mellem et halvt og et helt århundrede bag sig.”

Symphonies 4 & 5

MusicWeb Inernational

[..] "The superb recording makes the most of Nørgård’s iridescent colours and transparent textures - both the CD and Super Audio layers sound magnificent - and Storgårds proves himself a steady guide. But it’s Nørgård’s knack of blending accessibility with substance that’s impressed me most. John Storgårds makes a strong case for these symphonies; the recording is among Dacapo’s best."

Buxtehude and his Circle

5/5 Stars
Choir & Organ

Despite recordings, Buxtehude's cantatas are rarely heard. Rarer still are those composers with whom Buxtehude associated: Christian Geist, Nicolaus Bruhns, Franz Tunder and Kasper Förster, whose works for voices and instruments, together with Buxtehude's, are the subjects of this recording. And what marvels they are! A particular discovery for me is Bruhn's De profundis, but all the pieces demonstrate the highest level of craftmanship and are given excellent performances that capture the lively rhetorical spirit of the music admirably. This CD is highly recommended, especially to those fascinated by late 17th-century north German adn Danish music.
