About
In Bent Lorentzen’s (b. 1935) instrumental concertos the genre-bound potential of drama, dialogue and even duel is thoroughly explored. At the same time each individual concerto is an exploration of the musical and sonic world of
the solo instrument and its possible modes of interacting with the orchestra. This is deeply original music, offering many surprises and a lot of good humour.
Reviews
Nærværende tre værker - en solokoncert og to dobbeltkoncerter - er et tiltalende møde med en utraditionel og klangtligt grænsesprængende, men samtidig veloplagt lyttevenlig effektmusik.
(Politiken)

The performances are first-rate, the sonics excellent, and...these three works certainly establish Lorentzen as a distinctive, often appealing musical voice.
(Classics Today)

Lorentzen boltrer sig i legen med lyde og overraskende effekter, og de tre værker på denne cd skuffer ikke.
(Dansk Musik Tidsskrift, 08/2006)

Kendere og beundrere af Bent Lorentzen går ikke galt i byen
(Musikeren, 09/2006)

Musikken er ørevenlig og spændende, velskrevet og lettilgængelig. Man kan roligt holde sig til"
(High Fidelity)

Wir haben es mit drei sehr gutgemachten Kompositionen zu tun, die beim Hörer wirkliche Freude aufkommen lassen. Die Solisten sind ohne Ausnahme hervorragend und auch die Aarhus Sinfonietta spielt mit dem notwendigen Klangpotential.
(Pizzicato, 3/2007)
