Danielsson & Hives– a dangerously attractive mix
Danielsson Double Concerto for cor-anglais and cello/double-bass & Charles Ives Three Places in New England.

The jazz bass-player and composer Lars Danielsson has written a piece for Gothenburg Symphony’s Björn Bohlin, cor-anglais, with the composer playing a part for cello/double-bass – a truly creative performing musician. Enjoy this piece in combination with three orchestral pieces by the eccentric Charles Ives – a dangerously attractive mix.
"Danielsson Double Concerto for cor-anglais and cello/double-bass:
The jazz bass-player and composer Lars Danielsson has written a piece for Gothenburg Symphony’s Björn Bohlin, cor-anglais, with the composer playing a part for cello/double-bass – a truly creative performing musician.
Regarding sounds, rhythms and colours, composers like Debussy and Ravel and innovators such as Gil Evans and Joe Zawinul have made impressions on Lars Danielsson. The Double Concerto is both sensitive and filled with energy (joy!), with an innate ability to captivate the listener."
"Three Places in New England is one of the most popular works by the American composer Charles Ives.
It contains several elements typical of Ives: different melodies played simultaneously, musical quotes and rich chords. The work is a musical picture of American life in the early 20th century, effervescent and vital. This is a listening experience out of the ordinary – Charles Ives the eccentric refused to follow any conventions what-so-ever!"
