 Throughout his long life, the composer Vagn Holmboe (1909-96) wrote music with a Zen-like balance between intellect and nature. He saw chamber music as an ideal world and expressed himself in a multiplicity of ensembles, forms and formats – as shown in this acclaimed CD series featuring the Danish group Ensemble MidtVest.

 Critics Choice

Recommeded."

Guy Rickards - Gramophone magazine - July 2013


 "... These are all relatively short works, as was Holmboe’s wont, with a pleasant balance between fast and slow and witty and lyrical music. These pieces have mostly not appeared before, to my knowledge, except one recording of the cello sonata, so the disc is a welcome addition to the large backlog of this fine composer’s music."

David W Moore - American Record Guide - May/June 2013


"...The performances strike me as idiomatic and confident, the relaxed manner suiting the affable disposition of much of the music. It may be that more forceful readings would show a different side to some of it, but I fear we would have to wait a long time, and gratitude is the more apposite response in the short term. The recording is as clear as Holmboe’s textures. His personality radiated a fundamental integrity, and there’s no more artefact in the music than there was in the man. The single word that best describes it? Honest."
