Info for Riisager, K.: Benzin / Archaeopteryx / Til Apollon
This brilliant premiere recording of Knudåge Riisager's music for Benzin as well as two other ballet scores Archæopteryx and Apollon demonstrates the composer's unique talent for colourful and intelligent orchestral writing which recalls the spells of early 20th Century symphonic music at its best.
For my money, Riisager is Denmark's finest composer after Nielsen ... Owain Arwel Hughes leads his excellent orchestra with evident enthusiasm, while the album sonics are very good. This release does Riisager proud. (Classics Today)
