Axel Borup-Jørgensen (1924-2012) was a composer of details. Throughout his life he took a deep interest in sounds in all their complexity, fusing mixtures of rhythms, notes and timbres into totalities built up from minute details with perfectionist sensibility. However, even in his seemingly most fragmented works, the music is poetically grounded and Romantic in its expressiveness. This world premiere recording of four key works by Borup-Jørgensen combines two leading Danish ensembles, Århus Sinfonietta and Ars Nova Copenhagen.
