 Storgards, John

Vagn Holmboe’s three chamber symphonies span the period when the Danish com poser immersed himself in symphonic works; they are a fine demonstration of his preoccupation with the processes of nature and the idea of musical metamorphosis. Lapland Chamber Orchestra and its conductor John Storgårds focus on Vagn Holmboe’s clear musical expression in three major works that have never previously been recorded.
"...John Storgårds and the Lapland Chamber Orchestra deserve special thanks for bringing these three remarkable chamber symphonies to the catalog in performances of such insight and technical perfection..."
Ronald E Grames - Fanfare - January 2013

Rémy Franck - Pizzicato magazine - November 2012

"...The Lapland Chamber Orchestra led by John Storgards once again shows that it is an unbeatably sensitive interpreter of new music."
Karoliina Vesa - Finnish Music Quarterly - December 2012

Jean-Luc Caron - Classica - October 2012

"...Conductor John Storgårds achieves a detailed and colourful performance with the Lapland Chamber Orchestra. The string section especially is tireless in its execution of whirling lines and ensemble precision. A very enjoyable world premiere recording!"
Tiina Kiik - The Whole Note - October 2012


Christine Christiansen - - September 2012

                 Gramophone Choice
"... Excellent performances, superb sound: you will not hear a finer disc this year."
Guy Rickards - Gramophone magazine - October 2012

"...This recording further enhances Dacapo’s stance as one of Denmark’s preeminent classical music labels."
Jean-Yves Duperron - Classical Music Sentinel - August 2012

"...enough to make a convert out of any listener... all three works boast similar qualities - clarity of design, melodic grace and a light-fingered yet profound mastery of the orchestra."
Josh Kosman - San Francisco Chronicle - 26 August 2012

"...John Storgards and the Lapland Chamber Orchestra play with an attention to detail, precision of ensemble, and clarity of texture that can only be called perfect..."
