Emil Reesen, composer

The composer and conductor Emil Reesen (1887-1964) was a unique jack-of-all-trades in Danish music. He composed everything from film melodies to operettas and ballets for the Royal Theatre, and it was all typified by his masterly craftmanship and great melodic talent. On this CD you can hear examples of his infectious, brilliant orchestral music, including the rhapsody Himmerland, the imposing Festival March and the fiery dances from the ballet Gaucho.

The music heard here is superbly played in a warm acoustic and most enjoyable for all listeners. What a fine recording this is and how affectionately the individual works are handled by orchestra and Bo Holten alike.
(Musicweb International)

Cd´en med Aalborg Symfoniorkester under ledelse af Bo Holten giver fine eksempler på Reesens kunnen og klare talent i balletmusik, suiter, arrangementer og variationsværker. Der er let og ubesværet flavor af senromantisk elegance over det, velskrevet og velklingende.
(**** Århus Stifttidende)

her er noget for enhver smag.... Bo Holten svinger stokken over et velspillende Aalborg SYmfoniorkester.

Reesen kann man nebenbei hören, aber auch unbeschadet zur Hauptsache der Beschäftigung erklären. Enttäuscht wird man auf keinen Fall.

En glimrende udførelse. Aalborg orkestret spiller perfekt, og Bo Holten synes at være manden til den slags
(High Fidelity)

Recorded at Symfonien, Aalborg, on 12-16 June 2006.
