Notes and Editorial Reviews

Making important decisions can be complicated. It can also be perfectly simple. Most of the time, though, it seems like it is both. Echoing such intertwined feelings of doubt and clarity, Niels Ronsholdt (b. 1978) presents a unique song cycle full of mirrors, sensitivity and undaunted experimentation. The music included on this release transcends the boundaries between classical and pop music. The work stood out at both November Music Festival 2015 (Holland) and SPOR Festival 2016 (Denmark), receiving the biggest audience applause at both festivals. Niels Ronsholdt teaches composition alongside fellow composer Simon Steen-Andersen at the Danish Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, the former home of composers such as Per Norgard and Bent Read more Sorensen. Of Ronsholdt’s previous release, Nordische Musik gave five stars and wrote: “Me Quitte is anything but difficult avant-garde music: it is emotional, fragile, moving, dreamlike, and yes, even charming.” Read less
