Svend Erik Tarp album reviewed

2018-06-22
Earlier this month, Dacapo Records released an album with recordings of Svend Erik Tarp's early works. "Well written and well played" is the verdict from Politiken's critic.

Included on the newly released album is 'Concertino for Flute and Orchestra'  (1937) published by Edition·S, and about this the review says:

"A fine little concert for flute and orchestra is held purely in the anti-romantic style of the 1930's. It is not lacking in melodic beauty and is beautifully played by the flute player Lena Kildahl [...] The concert is held in a rhythmically clear, fresh tone with some oddly twisted references to the children's song 'Bro Bro Brille' and a beautiful nightly intermezzo"

The album is the first volume of three in a collaboration between Dacapo Records and Aarhus Symphony Orchestra on releasing a selection of Svend Erik Tarp's orchestral works. According to Politiken this first album shows great promise for the rest of the series.
