Notes and Editorial Reviews

The composer Andy Pape (b. 1955) was born in Hollywood, California but came to Denmark to study in 1971 and ended up making his home in this small Nordic country. The title work of this CD, An Amerikaner in Danmark, is not just a reference to the composer himself, but also a humorous and brilliantly orchestrated tribute to the composer George Gershwin. It is presented on this world premiere recording together with the tuba concerto Suburban Nightmares and the bassoon concerto Traces of Time Lost. - DaCapo The composer Andy Pape (b. 1955) was born in Hollywood, California but came to Denmark to study in 1971 and ended up making his home in this small Nordic country.
