Orchestral Works
Århus Sinfonietta

Tage Nielsen, composer

Aarhus Symphony Orchestra
Jean Thorel, conductor

Tage Nielsen’s music is unique in its outstanding feeling for both subtleties of sonority and appropriate ‘action’. Although the music is modern and fresh, it is also music that works in and of itself. This new CD presents premiere recordings of the major work Passacaglia, the ‘alternative’ piano concerto Konzertstück and three other characteristic orchestral works by the recently deceased composer.

There is much to be gained from these new recordings with their pure but direct colours and details, meaningful gestures and timing.
(Politiken, Denmark)

The performances by the two Århus orchestras are splendid and Dacapo's sound serves the music admirably.
(Nordic Sounds)

Recorded in Frichsparken, Århus on 9-12 september 2003 and 22-26 March 2004
Recording producer: Morten Mogensen
Recording engineer: Claus Byrith
Graphic design: Elevator

Dacapo acknowledges, with gratitude, the financial support of Aarhus Symphony Orchestra’s Fund, Danish Composers’ Society/KODA’s Funds for Social and Cultural Purposes and KODA’s collective Blank Tape Remuneration
