SACD/6.220665 – Concertos
Per Morten Bye, Robert Holmsted, Odense Symphony Orchestra, Giordano Bellincampi
Ib Glindemann was without doubt one of the most important figures in Denmark's big-band and jazz world from the 1950s onward. But the renowned Danish jazz orchestra leader and composer also cultivated a less well known classical side. This release is the first to feature a fully classical Glindemann programme: two brilliant instrumental concertos and an impressive medley of his film music celebrating his distinctive flair for writing happy, undemanding, festive and effective music.
