Leif Segerstam

Axel Borup-Jørgensen, composer

Danish National Symphony Orchestra / DR

Nordic landscape and Swedish poetry meet Central European modernism in the intuitive, inwardlooking mood paintings of the Dane Axel Borup-Jørgensen. The four central orchestral works on this CD a´re lyrical/impressionistic evocations of nature: a Swedish landscape, a summer's day, the sea, and autumn. Light, colour and movement tranformed into sound in music that appears to be painted rather than composed.

Recorded at the Danish Radio Concert Hall on November 1994 and June 1995

Recording producer: Claus Due
Sound engineer: Jørn Jacobsen
Editing engineers: Claus Due and Jørn Jacobsen
Publisher: Edition Samfundet ("Sommasvit" and "Marin")
