Vagn Holmboe: Chamber Works Vol. 1 - Primavera for Flute, Violin, Cello & Piano - Gioco for Violin, Viola & Cello - Sonata for Solo Flute - Ballata for Violin Viola, Cello & Piano - Quartetto for Flute, Violin, Viola & Cello Ensemble MidtVest - Dacapo 2011

I have both Volume 1 and Volume 2 of Vagn Holmboe's Chamber Music series (hopefully Volume 3 is in the works!) in my unopened piles of discs and I'm excited to get familiar with these pieces; Holmboe has always been one of my favorite composers, and thus far I have always been impressed and delighted by his rarely explored chamber works. I am in the midst of listening to "Primavera" and I can confirm that it is a delight; effervescent and playful, it has a similar charm to some of Martinu's chamber works. The Volume 2 disc I shall post soon, perhaps tonight if I can stay awake! 






Let us all enjoy!

Oh, thank you!

Greetings Cjv. Ha, I would take great pride in making you a convert ;) And indeed, Vagn Holmboe's chamber music would make for a good launch pad, a gateway drug if you will. I think the same can be said especially for the chamber music of such composers as Poulenc, Bax, Martinu, Villa-Lobos, Gaubert, Ibert, (and all the obvious French composers), any Dvorak, Arensky, Juon, and well..on and on..

Best,

TZ

¿Quién más que doctor T verdad! .... cuando se trata de la radio en la Argentina creo que son un poco como Júpiter "El Portador de la jovialidad;-)

Me gusta sobre todo Sinfonías de Holmboe, Sala Conciertos, varios Concertos, sus encantadoras "Preludios" para Sinfonietta (hay muchos, de la variación de los estados de ánimo y motivaciones; varios son poemas sinfónicos realmente) los cuartetos de cuerda, y así sucesivamente! Todo lo que esté en mis oídos en verdad ..

Buen fin de semana a un querido amigo,

TZ
