Søren Nils Eichberg has had an opera staged at Covent Garden and three symphonies recorded by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. Dacapo is pleased to present a selection of the composer’s piano-focused works performed by the pianist Emil Gryesten and friends, each written in the decade following Eichberg’s victory at the 2001 Queen Elisabeth Competition. From the rhapsodic to the cryptic and from the joyous to the cautionary, they present a picture of one of Europe’s brightest young composers in the full flow of inspiration.
