It is magic through transparency. The music of Hans Abrahamsen (b. 1952), dark yet alluringly innocent, exhibits a pure, strong naïveté that opens up into a genuine magical world of both the bright and the sombre kind. Performing two of his early works – Six Pieces for horn trio and his first string quartet 10 Preludes Ensemble MidtVest brings out Abrahamsen’s characteristic clear, precise tone. The same clarity inhabits his arrangements of Erik Satie’s Trois Gymnopédies and Carl Nielsen’s Fantasy Pieces, exploring and evoking the original works in a new, unmistakably Abrahamsenesque way.

“Hans Abrahamsen’s music is having a moment in the spotlight, and this is another excellent contribution from the Ensemble MidtVest” – BBC Music Magazine review of 8226090

“All the score’s curious mixture of bite and nostalgia is absolutely and deliciouslyconveyed”
– Gramophone review of 8226090
