Chamber Concertos Vol. 4

Vagn Holmboe

Chamber Concertos Vol. 4

Jacques Mauger, Ole Edvard Antonsen, Max Artved, Tim Frederiksen, Hannu Koivula, Danish National Chamber Orchestra
The spirit of folk culture plays an important role in the music of Vagn Holmboe. As was the case with Béla Bartók, folkloristic studies have here contributed significantly to the compositional process. Holmboe is the most influential Danish composer of the generation after Carl Nielsen and his large output includes twelve symphonies, chamber concertos, and a long series of extremely fine string quartets.
