Chamber music and songs by: Bo Lundby-Jæger
Soprano Helene Gjerris
Danish Chamber Players
Bo Lundby-Jæger (b. 1964) finds the germ of his chamber music in poetry and in the individual properties of the instruments. Poetry is both the music's expressive undertone and the lyrics that - often with serious words - give much of the music its concrete content. The CD's five works are music of simple contrasts between new melodies and old forms, between heartfelt calm and pulsating movements, which together provide a streak of original and straightforward musical experiences.
