Gade’s masterpiece ’Elverhøj’ performed sensationally in technicolor

»To expose Gade to such a 'reinterpretation' had the result of eliminating the patinated impressions of earlier recordings and resulted in a new astonishing image of Gade's music in glorious technicolor.«

In his right element: Happy Birthday, Jordi Savall!

»The more precise, expressive, joyful, releasing and homogeneous was the performance by the ensemble. […] Concerto Copenhagen had everything in control during Rebel’s ’The Elements’ […] which were launched by a unique creation of chaos from an experimental, atmospheric and demanding setup mastered to perfection by the ensemble.«

Gesualdo Shadows – opera by Bo Holten at Den Fynske Opera

»It was in every way a charming evening where everyone on and behind the stage gave their best. And for me it is always a special pleasure to be able to see the musicians. On a very Baroque manner the 10 musicians were placed in two rows facing each other - strings by strings and wind instruments and flutist on opposite sides and between the musicians was the harpsichord. Beautiful.«
