Per Nørgård is regarded as the most important contemporary Danish composer, but his impressive early piano works, foreshadowing significant elements of his mature style, have never before appeared on CD. These include the youthfully joyous and bravura Toccata and the symphonic-scaled Sonate, Op.6 influenced by Sibelius and Holmboe. Finn Lykkebo’s atonal Tableaux are poetic pearls of precision and economy, while the deeply symbolic and challenging Stadier and other works represent Lars Aksel Bisgaard’s complete piano music.

Carl Petersson graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen, where he completed both his studies in piano and pedagogy with José Ribera. During his studies he took part in numerous international master-classes in Denmark, Sweden and Israel. In 2013 he received his PhD Degree from the Music Academy in Kraków. He has performed as a soloist as well as with orchestras on numerous occasions in Canada, the United States, Sweden, Denmark, Poland, France, the Czech Republic, Germany and Israel.
