Throughout her extraordinary career, Michala Petri has embraced the entirety of the recorder’s repertoire, from the Baroque to the 21st c. Danish and Faroese Recorder Concertos is the latest installment in Michala’s ongoing “Concerto Project”, (previous releases include Chinese Recorder Concertos (6.220603), English Recorder Concertos (6.220606) and the Grammy®-nominated Movements (6.220531)), presenting new works composed especially for her, from an international roster of some of the greatest contemporary composers. The three works featured here provide just a sample of the rich and colorful diversity of Danish and Faroese contemporary music; from the late Thomas Koppel’s tender, tonally-centered Moonchild’s Dream, to Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, the dean of Danish composers, and his darkly humorous Chacun Son Son, to the vigorous and atmospheric 20-minute bird-cadenza for recorder and orchestra, Territorial Songs, by the internationally acclaimed Faroese composer Sunleif Rasmussen. A disc that NO fan of contemporary music or Michala Petri will want to be without!
