About 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.
Reviews 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)
Credits 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
