The prolific and popular Danish composer Per Nørgård has written over 400 works, four of which are performed here by Ensemble MidtVest. His music for Gabriel Axel’s film Babette’s Feast, an Oscar winner in 1987, is presented complete. The wind quintet Whirl's World (1970) has become a classic of the genre, and Spell (1973) is a hypnotic trio for clarinet, cello and piano. Trio breve (2012) for violin, cello and piano is the most recent work, never before recorded.
