La Folia, May 2015

Periphrasis for recorder and percussion stands out. © 2015 La Folia Read complete review

Henry Fogel
Fanfare, January 2015

The disc opens with Solo…[and] Gert Mortensen plays it with virtuosity and a sense of drama, which is appropriate because this is music with a real theatrical flair.

…listeners with an open mind and open ears…are likely to find themselves delighted by the extraordinary range of moods and colors contained in this disc. Stunning performances and crystal clear recorded sound are all a composer could want. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Ronald E. Grames
Fanfare, January 2015

The Percussion Universe of Axel Borup-Jørgensen is among the handful of very best percussion recordings that I have heard.

Gert Mortensen is amazing throughout the program… His colleagues are no less impressive. …OUR Recordings’ association with Edition Borup-Jørgensen fosters hope…that there will be further exploration of this composer’s large catalog of works in the years ahead. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Richard Whitehouse
Gramophone, September 2014

Recorded with startling clarity and informatively annotated, this release is another triumph for Gert Mortensen and the formidable roster of musicians with whom he has collaborated on this project—so resulting in a memorable listening experience. © 2014 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone
