Notes and Editorial Reviews

12 Studies' forms a three-way journey through composer Bo Gunge’s (b. 1964) own life of music, a range of human moods and a series of western music’s most tantalizing intervals. All twelve pieces, characterized by their simplicity and expressive clarity, are performed in both solo and duo versions; through this mirror the music shows its duality, born of a solid idea but let loose – uninhibited and free. In a widespread 2016 vote, Danish radio listeners at P2 Classical chose a choral piece by Bo Gunge as their favorite piece of new music composed after 2000. This is Gunge’s first release on the Dacapo label. 12 Studies' forms a three-way journey through composer Bo Gunge’s (b. 1964) own life of music, a range of human moods and a series of western music’s most tantalizing intervals.
