These are World premiere recordings of Vagn Holmboe's 3 masterly chamber symphonies, performed by an expert Finnish team. The Finnish conductor John Storgårds really stands out. In 2008 he was appointed chief conductor of the Helsinki Philharmonic, one of Scandinavia’s best and most tradition-rich orchestras. He is also artistic director of the magical Lapland Chamber Orchestra and, since 2012, Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic.

Vagn Holmboe’s three chamber symphonies span the period when the Danish composer immersed himself in symphonic works. They are a fine demonstration of his preoccupation with the processes of nature and the idea of musical metamorphoses.
