Item Number: NX.8226134

Bent Sorensen's piano concerto Mignon- part of his Papillons trilogy- reveals textural beauty and melodic elegance in a language both modernist and sweetly nostalgic. The piece was written for Katrine Gislinge, one of the most significant pianists in Scandinavia, and on this premiere recording she is accompanied by Lapland Chamber Orchestra, conducted by John Storgards. A former student of Per Norgard, Bent Sorensen (b. 1958) is one of the most internationally performed Danish composers. His works have been performed at Carnegie Hall, the BBC Proms, and other notable venues across the world by ensembles like the London Sinfonietta, Ensemble InterContemporain, SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg, and more. Sorensen is a highly decorated composer, winning the Nordic Council Music Prize in 1996, the ‘International Award' at British Composer Awards 2011, and was composer-in-residence at Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival 2011 and Trondheim Chamber Music Festival 2016. Of his previous album, Gramophone wrote: "...all-round excellence and a disc that's unusually moving in one sitting.".
