Fini Henriques, composer

About:
Fini Henriques (1867-1940) was not only a well-loved violinist and popular composer, he was a
cultural phenomenon. With unpretentious charm and great humanity he became the favourite
musician of the Danes. His works radiate humour and a wealth of ideas. The music flowed easily
from his pen, and he enjoyed unique success with orchestral music, especially the ballet Den lille
havfrue (The Little Mermaid) and the theatre music for Vølund Smed (Wayland Smith).

Reviews

FANFARE - THE WANT LIST 2002

Giordano Bellincampi leads the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra and the two fine soloists in enthusiastic, loving performances and they're vividly recorded too. There's really nothing else to say: if you enjoy exploring the nooks and crannies of high quality "light" music, you'll find this a disc to treasure." (ClassicsToday)

"High-quality light music. The performances appear to be first-rate ... this anthology is highly recommended" (International Record Review)
