About

Vagn Holmboe (1909-1996) worked throughout his life to distill his own ideas and cut out the unnecessary. This collection comprises all of his 13 concise chamber concertos and his four sinfonias in the acclaimed recordings by the Danish National Chamber Orchestra and former chief conductor Hannu Koivula. The neoclassical concertos concertos for one or more soloists reveal Holmboe’s rustic, down-to-earth style, that can bedescribed as Danish or Nordic, and his inspiration from eastern European folk music.

Holmboe’s four Sinfonias were written from 1957-62, and when the last of them was finished, Holmboe realised that the four works together - in a different order - could be viewed as one large work, to which he gave the name Kairos. Both versions are included in this box set.
