OLE BUCK Værker for sinfonietta

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.”

[..] "Pour l'interprétation magistrale de Johan Reuter et la direction vibrante de Michael Schønwandt, ce premier DVD de l'œuvre s'impose avec évidence."

Buxtehude and his Circle

”When the beauty of their music matches a text that may speak particularly to you, the emotional effect can be quite overwhelming.”

PER NØRGÅRD Symfonier 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

Gramophone

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.

Carl Nielsen sunget af DRs kor

"All the groups are wonderful, even the children [..] What comes through again and again is the beauty of Nielsen’s writing, heavily triadic with sparing dissonance and no hint of dark emotion." [..]

BRUHNS & SCHEIDEMANN Orgelværker

American Record Guide

[..] "Bine Bryndorf’s [..] playing here is eminently musical, not an academic exercise in period technique at the expense of artistic sense - as we too often hear in recordings of early organ music. She clearly understands the musical rhetoric of the Stylus Phantasticus as evidenced by her flexibility in tempo." [..]

PER NØRGÅRD Symfonier 2 & 6

Gramophone

[..] "The detail in the writing - articulation bestowed upon single instruments in the tiniest of gestures - is beguiling. So are these performances. Listening across the orchestra is vital in this music, just as in Sibelius. The Oslo Philharmonic sound settled at the foundations while suggesting spontaneity on the surface. Storgårds offers a touch more nimbleness and translucence than Sakari Oramo, who started this Dacapo cycle with the Vienna Philharmonic. The brass and percussion offer extreme restraint and delicacy. The Oslo string sound is tight but can be wholly embracing too."

PAUL VON KLENAU Symfoni nr. 9

[..] "Bravo to these musicians for giving the piece every chance. Excellent playing, good [..] choral singing and excellent contributions from the inimitable Susanne Resmark [..] and open-voiced tenor Michael Weinius." [..]

PER NØRGÅRD Symfonier 4 & 5

The Guardian

[..] "these four symphonies are utterly different from each other. [..] But of these four works, the Sixth Symphony (1999) is for me the most extraordinary. …this music constantly opens up new territory, spawning luminous fresh ideas right up to the closing bars. It creates an exhilarating, sometimes revelatory musical journey, but then what all these symphonies offer is unlike anything any other composer is writing today."
