Af Liber Canticorum / Fabula II - Vagn Holmboe (mid-20C Danish composer - DMA 028)

£5.99

Product description

Born in 1909 and educated at the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music in Copenhagen, one of Vagn Holmboe's first post-graduate interests, and studies was, oddly enough, the folk music of Romania, whereby he made a study tour of that country, in the early Thirties. His favourite influences were, firstly, Austrian Joseph Haydn - whose brilliant construction of movement had a strong influence on the Dane -, followed by the romantic and symphonic works of fellow Scandinavian, Jean Sibelius.

Those two, plus European folk traditions in general, roughly formed the basis of Holmboe's compositional style. "Af Liber Canticorum" was composed for a capella choir / unaccompanied chorus, in the early fifties. Volumes II and IV, are presented on this album (further information and lyrics on inner sleeve)
