This is Vivaldi for the 21st century. At it's heart, the album is a conversation between past and present, between classical composition and new discoveries, between composers over time spans. Danish composer Karl Aage Rasmussen (b. 1947) has always been keen on exploring our experience of time and movement. Building bridges between cultures and traditions, he here sheds new light on original compositions by Vivaldi and Respighi, written during his period as composer-in- residence for Danish National Baroque Orchestra Concerto Copenhagen. Karl Aage Rasmussen graduated from the Aarhus Academy of Music in 1971, where he was appointed Professor in Composition in 1988. Many of his works use pre-existing material woven into a dense musical montage. Words like 'de-composing' and 're-composing' seem fit, and in later years, this interest has resulted in the arrangement and completion of music by Schumann and Schubert. Rasmussen was awarded the Carl Nielsen Prize in 1991 and the Wilhelm Hansen Composer Prize in 1997.
