Vagn Holmboe: Concertos for Piano; Clarinet and Oboe; Beatus Parvo

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
Something of Vagn Holmboe's approach to writing concertos may be discerned in his numeration: they are not grouped according to the solo instrument e.g., "Piano Concerto No. 1", but counted merely as "Concertos" in the sequence of their composition, regardless of the featured instruments. This suggests that the soloist's role is somewhat altered: still central as a leading part, but frequently incorporated into the orchestral mass as a coloristic instrument among many others. The "Concerto No. 1 for piano and orchestra, Op. 17" 1939, clearly demonstrates Holmboe's procedure, for the piano switches back and forth between lyrical solos and more emphatically rhythmic ...

This suggests that the soloist's role is somewhat altered: still central as a leading part, but frequently incorporated into the orchestral mass as a coloristic instrument among many others. The "Concerto No. 1 for piano and orchestra, Op. 17" 1939, clearly demonstrates Holmboe's procedure, for the piano switches back and forth between lyrical solos and more emphatically rhythmic passages as a percussion instrument. Holmboe's "Concerto No. 3 for clarinet and orchestra, Op. 21" 1940-1942, also presents interesting mixtures of the instrument's distinctive tone with other timbres, most strikingly with the brass section. The "Concerto No. 7 for oboe and orchestra, Op. 37" 1944-1945, is most beguiling in the many chamber-like, concertino combinations of the oboe with other woodwinds. Pianist Noriko Ogawa, clarinetist Martin Frost, and oboist Gordon Hunt strike the right balance with conductor Owain Arwel Hughes and the Ålborg Symphony Orchestra, since all give prominence to the leading part where Holmboe indicates, but equal attention to the ever-shifting background textures.
