Thanks for uploading.  I look forward to listening to it after my current Penderecki play list.  I'm a fan of his and one of my classmates was his student so I feel like I have a semi-personal connection to his output because I consider my former classmate a very fine composer.

Dacapo released a disc of three concerti (piano, clarinet and trumpet respectively) a couple of weeks ago:



I'll be honest and say I wasn't very impressed on the couple of listenings I've given it thus far. In terms of his concertante work I was more impressed by the piano concerto La Notte and the Mignon cycle.

Sørensen's new 3rd Piano Concerto, La Sera Estatica, premiered a few days ago, gets ... ecstatic reviews here in Denmark, such as in the Politiken newspaper.

Like Schumann's 4th Symphony being a portrait of Clara, the concerto is inspired by Sørensen's wife, the pianist Katrine Gislinge, and her piano playing during corona.

There'll very likely be a recording.

I'm planning to buy the Dacapo download-only recording of the 12 Nocturnes, but I'm not very happy about it. I sure hope that Dacapo does not abandon physical releases, and I worry that actually paying for these FLAC files will just encourage them to make more digital-only releases.

If you're worried your purchase will only encourage Dacapo to pursue digital-only purchases then the simple solution would be not to purchase the download-only release. Pretty simple!
