Otto Malling, composer

At the cathedral organist in Copenhagen and principal of the Royal Danish Academy of Music Otto Malling washeld in high esteem in Danish musical life at the turn of the century. He mainly composed organ works and vocal music, but he also wrote a most appealing Piano Trio and one of the very few Danish Piano Concertos of the Romantic period. His grasp of music was impressively sure, and he could operate with Late Romantic effects with an inevitability that few Danish composers possessed.

The performance of Malling's solitary Piano Concerto is a fine one, featuring some particularly sensitive solo playing. Amalie Malling then joins her regular chamber music partners for a delightful rendering of the blatantly Schumannesque A minor Piano Trio. The sound has a seductive velvety sheen in both works that rounds off a most welcome release to perfection
(The Strad)

Das gedankenvolle Klavertrio ist ebenso wie das Konzert von hoher musikalischer Qualität und dokumentiert, sich von der Virtuosa zur sensibel agierenden Kammermusikparnerin zu wandeln
(Fono Forum)

Les solistes, excellents, atténuent l’emphase et l’academisme d’une partition brillante, plus parfaite formellement que foncièrement séduisante (Répertoire)

Elegant klingende, sprudlende værker ypperligt spillet af Amalie Malling (Ekstra Bladet)
