SACD/6.220651 – Ich bin die Auferstehung – Buxtehude and His Copenhagen Connections
Jakob Bloch Jespersen, Concerto Copenhagen, Lars Ulrik Mortensen
Musikken fra sidste halvdel af 1600-tallets Baltikum kendetegnes ved en frygtløs innovation og boblende kreativitet. Her præsenteres et nøje udvalg af periodens solokantater og kammermusik af basbaryton Jakob Bloch Jespersen og Concerto Copenhagen under ledelse af Lars Ulrik Mortensen.
Karl Aage Rasmussen
CD/8.226221 – Alone & Together
Fredrik From, Alfredo Bernardini, Anne Søe, Concerto Copenhagen, Athelas Sinfonietta Copenhagen, Magnus Fryklund
Modsat mange af hans radikale ny-musik-kollegaer har Karl Aage Rasmussen altid haft en stor forkærlighed for ældre musik, især den man finder i den italienske barok. På dette album med solokoncerter udvider Rasmussen sin musikalske afsøgning af solokoncerten som genre med fokus på relationen mellem eneren og fællesskabet – en arketypisk modsætning, der i århundreder har givet genren en særlig fascinationskraft såvel for komponister som for publikum.

Bára Gísladóttir
Digital only/8.226621 – HĪBER
Bára Gísladóttir
With HĪBER, her debut release for Dacapo, the 30-year-old Icelandic composer and double bassist Bára Gísladóttir has created an album that is coloured by a distinct dark atmosphere, emphasizing a menacing and distorted bass scenery as presented by herself in an intimate solo setting. In HĪBER, a unified and uncompromising soundscape unfolds - one where sounds of different origin join textures and techniques and merge into a single aural organism that falls outside any usual category or label. The title, HĪBER, is a reference to hibernation and winter.

/8.226223 – Still Life
Anders Koppel, Henrik Dam Thomsen
Music created by veteran Danish composer and Hammond organ player Anders Koppel has been the mainstay of several successful Dacapo releases over the past years. Now, Still Life joins them as a documentation of a new endeavour of his, a vibrant music-making in duo with Danish master cellist Henrik Dam Thomsen, whose far-reaching musical creativity proves a fine match for Koppel’s own. Still Life is a meeting of kindred spirits – yielding 15 impressions of life as captured in a dimly lit night.

Elsebeth Dreisig, Magnus Vigilius, Lars Møller, Ruslana Koval, Kirsten Grønfeldt, Jens Bové, Joachim Gustafsson, Odense Symfoniorkester, Den Jyske Operas Kor
Treason, desire and murder - served on a silver platter of glorious Romantic music from 1894 in this world premiere recording of a stirring opera about the murderous plot against Kleopatra, fabled Queen of the Nile. Beautiful melodies, alluring harmonies and tense leitmotifs, all expertly put to use by probably the most celebrated Danish opera composer of his time, August Enna.

Rued Langgaard
CD/8.226132 – Samlede værker for violin og klaver vol. 3
Gunvor Sihm, Berit Johansen Tange
The last stage on a long journey, here is the third and final instalment of a warmly received Langgaard cycle undertaken by violinist Gunvor Sihm and pianist Berit Johansen Tange. The present volume includes the violin sonatas nos. 2 and 3 – highly accomplished works with strong individual features – and two single-movement pieces composed by Langgaard the precocious teenager: the charming Aubade written on a summer holiday with his parents, and the dark-coloured Night Watchman’s Song.
