Review By Bert Bailey,MusicWeb International,May 2013

…the present CD’s chamber works are beautifully-shaped and engaging…The Ensembl MidtVest play with polished delicacy but genuine relish, handling with apparent ease more than a few challenges while making the most of DaCapo’s impeccable sound.

In felicity these works sit comfortably beside those by Martinu and Poulenc – although they are rather more gritty than the latter’s, and, like the former’s, they very richly reward attentive listeners.

Fans should not hesitate to add this to their collections, and others are not likely to regret it. © MusicWeb International Read complete review

Review By Robert R. Reilly,Catholic News Agency,October 2011

this CD is a revelatory introduction to the broad range of [Vagn Holmboe’s] music. The playfulness of “Primavera” is a nice contrast to the seriousness of “Ballata.” These are not simply shavings from the master’s bench; each work stands as an integral jewel. This will be a mandatory purchase for Homlboe fans. Read complete review
