When the composer Herman D. Koppel (1908-98) began writing his cello works in the 1950s a brand new Danish cello repertoire was born. Koppel’s cello works are modern classics of Nordic music, full of power and beauty. For this CD release the cellist Morten Zeuthen has also asked Koppel’s grandchild, the jazz musician Benjamin Koppel, to write a new cello work. The result is an exploratory, demanding solo piece quite in the spirit of Herman D. Koppel.
"... All of these [works] are played by Zeuthen, a well-known and highly musical cellist ... He and Malling make a copacetic couple, working together seemingly without effort. This is valuable for the ne material and the muscialityof the performances."
