NORGARD / HIND: Works for Piano

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
This new Dacapo release witnesses a unique collaboration between the Danish composer Per N?©rg?Ñrd and three of the absolute hot shots of our time in contemporary music: the acclaimed English pianist and composer Rolf Hind and his two co-conspirators, the violinist David Alberman and the pianist Nicolas Hodges.

The works on the CD 'Secret Melodies' have exquisite poetic titles that could make anyone dream. At the same time this is music whose execution demands players equal to the challenge, with the major work 'Achilles and the Tortoise' as one of the absolute pianistic trials of strength in contemporary music. But above all N?©rg?Ñrd's music - at once esoteric and organic - offers experiences of a kind that seems to defy time and place.

According to 'The Independent' Rolf Hind is \one of the rare examples of a musician who could be just as successful if he chose a career as a composer".

"This is a splendid disc of challenging but very beautiful music by a composer with a recognizably personal idiom. This is one of the best contemporary music discs to come along in quite a while. Very highly recommended." (Classics Today on 8226014)

"This is the work of a major creative presence - and if the music of today is to have any tomorrow, N?©rg?Ñrd will surely be a part of it." (Gramophone Critic's Choice on 8.226014)
