Notes and Editorial Reviews

Bent Sørensen’s work Sounds Like You, with text by playwright Peter Asmussen, is a coupling of music and theatre, of orchestral work and drama, or in the composer’s own words: a theatrical play that has become an orchestral work and vice versa. The Danish National Symphony Orchestra, two actors, and a selection of singers from the Danish National Vocal Ensemble under Thomas Dausgaard are heard in this world premiere live recording. On the CD, Sounds Like You is combined with Intermezzi, a five-movement suite for two mezzos and orchestra, based on Sørensen’s and Asmussen’s opera Under the Sky.
