"A fascinating exploration of a unique and compelling musical voice.” Bachtrack *****

Elegant and deeply moving, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s music redefines the concept of simplicity. Regarded as a pivotal elder statesman of Danish musical life, his works are as humorous as they are contemplative, as violent as they are beautiful.

This performance consists of a set of pieces recently composed for his 80th birthday, and he has made a programme that perfectly contrasts and then unites the forces of the London Sinfonietta with Theatre of Voices, led by Paul Hillier. The music is extraordinary: curious, inventive, quirky, intense and ultimately beautiful. Across the course of the evening, he deconstructs Dowland’s haunting madrigal Flow My Tears, exploring and expanding its harmony and syllables.

This programme has already received 5* reviews for performances in Denmark and Huddersfield; if you don’t know Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s music yet, you will be glad you heard it live.
