Vagn Holmboe: Chamber Works Vol. 2 - Eco, Trio for Clarinet, Cello & Piano - Aspects for Wind Quintet - Sonata for Solo Cello - Quartetto Medico for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet & Piano - Sextet for Flute, Clarinet, Bassoon, Violin, Viola & Cello - Ensemble MidtVest Dacapo 2012

Here is volume 2 of Vagn Holmboe's chamber music on Dacapo; if it's half as good as volume 1 it will be top-draw material! Yes, volume 1 was as enchanting as I had imagined, perhaps even more so :)

I know nothing of these works yet (I might have 1 or 2 of the pieces someplace, but if so, it's from long ago and I cannot recall!), except that "Quartetto "Medico" was written for four amateur musicians who happened to be doctors; I was curious right away about the title so I skimmed through the booklet.  

Going to give this a first run now, care to join?

Querido doctor T, se me pasó por la mente que el Quartetto 'Médico' podría haber sido escrito en que honran;-) Este disco es casi tan agradable como el primer volumen, aunque ahora he jugado volumen 1 tal vez cinco veces y el volumen 2 pero una vez aquí.
Creo que será el despliegue de un montón de música de Vagn Holmboe aquí en el futuro, el hombre era un creador sin parar de delicias (ya sea grave o juguetón, profunda o simple) y ha estado en mi top 10 durante algún tiempo.

U bent van harte welkom Toon!

Yep, Mr. T. - Holmboe's a fair place to start in a appreciation of chamber music; listening to the first disc now !
Thanks for advice on others....mind you, will always be a 'big piece'man, but it's small-minded just to say I CAN'T enjoy some of this delightful stuff !
