Chimes of Memory

Gregers DH

"Konkret musik af særdeles billedskabende art. En umiskendelig lydforelskelse. Fuzzy selv sidder tilbage. Stemplet som ikke-kassabel. Der kommer stadig nyt fra trolddomsbunkeren på Kochsvej."

SA-CD.net

"DaCapo's regular recording producer Preben Iwan and sound engineer Jens Jamin have delivered an excellent concert image of the VPO set in its famous long-box hall, full of Nørgårdian minute detail, yet fully allowing the orchestra to excite the hall's rich resonance. I can think of very few VPO recordings from bigger labels which sound so natural."
