Knudåge Riisager (1897-1974) studied in Paris in the 1920s and became a pioneer of the Neo-Classicist style in Danish music. Lively and inventive, the music on this disc spans the years 1933-1940 and shows Riisager both as a composer inspired by the Neo-Baroque and as an exponent of a decidedly Danish sound. Previously released on CD, this acclaimed recording has now been given new life in outstanding SACD sound quality.

As a young man, Riisager studied political science, but at the same time took private lessons in music theory from Danish composers Otto Malling and Peder Gram. When he had completed his law studies he went to Paris for further studies in music theory with Albert Roussel and others. The years in Paris were crucial to his activities as a composer. He cultivated a French-inspired treatment of instrumentation and timbre, and remained a devotee of "Gallic" clarity in music. Lightness and gaiety are characteristic of his smallest works, but his elegance and masterly treatment of the instruments function brilliantly even in the largest works. Best known are his ballet works 'Etudes', 'Slaraffenland', 'Qarrtsiluni', which were created in collaboration with the great Danish choreographer Harald Lander, and the ballet 'Tolv med Posten' in collaboration with Børge Ralov. Many of his children's songs are still on the lips of Danes. Riisager was a cultured, intellectual figure and a lively debater. The fact that he drew inspiration from Central European Modernism was of great importance to Danish music. Along with other contemporary Danish composers who had studied abroad he definitively broke with Romanticism as well as the epigonism of Carl Nielsen's disciples.

Håkan Hardenberger is known as the greatest trumpet soloist today - and it is not only for his virtuosity that he is held in such high regard. Alongside the classical repertory, Hardenberger is the most noted pioneer of new trumpet works. Håkan Hardenberger performs with the world's leading orchestras, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Wiener Philharmoniker, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, London Symphony, The Philharmonia, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and NHK Symphony Orchestra. Conductors he regularly collaborates with include Pierre Boulez, Mikko Franck, Alan Gilbert, Daniel Harding, Paavo Järvi, Ingo Metzmacher, Andris Nelsons, Esa-Pekka Salonen, John Storgårds, Thomas Dausgaard and David Zinman. The works written for, and championed by Hardenberger, stand as key highlights in the repertory.
