This Dacapo release witnesses a unique collaboration between the Danish composer Per Nørgård and three of the absolute hot shots of our time in contemporary music: the acclaimed English pianist and composer Rolf Hind and his two co-conspirators, the violinist David Alberman and the pianist Nicolas Hodges.

The works on the CD 'Secret Melodies' have exquisite poetic titles that could make anyone dream. At the same time this is music whose execution demands players equal to the challenge, with the major work Achilles and the Tortoise as one of the absolute pianistic trials of strength in contemporary music. But above all Nørgård’s music – at once esoteric and organic – offers experiences of a kind that seems to defy time and place.

According to The Independent, Rolf Hind is “one of the rare examples of a musician who could be just as successful if he chose a career as a composer”.

Nicolas Hodges joins Rolf Hind in the piece for two pianos - Unendlicher Empfang.
