"The performances by everyone but especially by the star Jesper Sivebæk appear flawless and the recording ideal. This is an enchanting collection and any lover of Holmboe and all guitarists will want to have it."
- MusicWeb International

"The performers, all outstanding Danish musicians, capture the delicate personality of each work perfectly ... engineering is first-rate, with a palpable sense of those performers in a real space. The music has charm and substance. I really can’t think of a better way to invest 70 minutes, whether for heart or head."
- Fanfare

Guitarist Jesper Sivebæk takes the solo spotlight on this recording of guitar music by Danish composer Vagn Holmboe. Sivebæk is joined by Johannes Søe Hansen on violin and Bolette Roed playing recorder on the chamber works that round out this programme. When Holmboe started to write guitar music, he had already been composing for half a century. Captivated by this ancient instrument, Holmboe wrote two beautiful sonatas and a number of solo pieces as well as duets for guitar and other instruments, combining his love of simple, transparent structures and organic musical development with the folklore of foreign cultures and his own Nordic roots.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
