Ronald E. Grames
Fanfare, July 2013

The stylistic…structuring of the CD program, working from the more serious sonatas to the encore-like folk ballads, works beautifully. The performers, all outstanding Danish musicians, capture the delicate personality of each work perfectly, most especially guitarist Jesper Sivebæk. The engineering is first-rate, with a palpable sense of those performers in a real space. There are fine notes on the music. The music has charm and substance. I really can’t think of a better way to invest 70 minutes, whether for heart or head. © 2013 Fanfare Read complete review

If you are searching – in terms of music and its presentation – for exemplary craftsmanship, subtlety of nuance and a profoundly satisfying experience, you need hear no further. © 2013 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

The performances by everyone but especially by the star Jesper Siveboek, appear flawless and the recording ideal.

This is an enchanting collection and any lover of Holmboe and all guitarists will want to have it. © 2013 MusicWeb International Read complete review

American Record Guide, March 2013

…I was delighted to find this well-stuffed CD of [Holmboe’s] music in excellent performances.

The Duo Concertato is…a beautifully balanced work…and Sivebaek and Hansen make a convincing case for it.

But my favorite music are the two sets for recorder and guitar. The Canto e Danza makes no attempt to create an archaic sound for the archaic instrument, but it’s delightful. Moods shift from the plaintive to the playful.

Sivebaek and his colleagues play this music with love and expertise. I’m happy to have discovered it, and I’ll return to this disc often. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
