Orchestral Works Vol. 1
South Jutland Symphony Orchestra

Peder Gram, composer
Matthias Aeschbacher, conductor

Peder Gram enjoyed a prominent position in his time, not only because of the fine craftsmanship and artistic standard of his musical works, but also because of the many organizational duties in the musical world that made him one of his generation’s most influential Danish musical personalities. This release features some of Peder Gram’s most exciting orchestral works, covering the full spectrum of large-scale expression; from the sparkling and effectful to the highly dramatic and illustrative, festive and powerful.

Aeschbacher's presentation is sensitive, the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra full-blooded and expressive.
(Limelight Magazine)

Peder Gram is a composer well worth getting to know... his works are melodically very attractive, convincingly structured, and beautifully scored... The performances are vital and committed, doing the music full justice.
(Classics Today, David Hurwitz)

Poéme Lyrique er en passioneret musik med fine instrumentale detaljer, som forløses smukt af en række af Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkesters solospillere...
(02/2007, Klassisk)

Charmerende stof i en veldisponeret form.... Peder Gram får en fin behandling af et velspillende Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester med dirigenten Matthias Aeschbacher.
(**** Jydske Vestkysten)

Mest imponerar Poème lyrique från 1911, ett nio minuters adagio som också slog i både Paris och Berlin.... Utmärkta framföranden av den i Sönderborg baserade orkestern och schweizaren Matthias Aeschbacher.
(Gunnar Lanzky-Otto, Musik och Ljudteknik)

There is some lovely writing here.
(Musicweb International)

Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester gør det rigtigt godt. Som titlen antyder, er denne udgivelse vol. 1, så vi glæder os til vol. 2.

Recorded at Musikhuset Sønderborg on 9-13 January 2006
