Niels V. Bentzon

Piano Sonatas Vol. 1

Rodolfo Llambías, piano

Niels Viggo Bentzon, composer

Composer, pianist and cultural phenomenon is probably the brief formula that best characterizes Niels Viggo Bentzon amd his enormous range of activities over almost sixty years - with the piano as the main pivot. From his very birth music was present both in his genres and his environment. About a quarter of his total output is works for solo piano, and some of these - for example the early piano sonatas - are among the most important in recent Danish piano music.

Strukturerne i Bentzons musik fremtræder smukt, samtidig med at Llambias også formår at spille sig helt ud i de ekspressive ekstremer(Berlingske Tidende)
