There was a time, when I was making recordings of classical solo percussion works, without an intention of releasing any album with them included. These were not only pieces I was studying while being a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. Some of them were of course big steps on my path of development. But they are just great works in history of contemporary music. I wished I had recorded more.

With time passing I have less and less intention of recording great works of all time, to publish as a CD-album. But I am sentimental and therefore I compiled five pieces in one, self released, unofficial album, available for free via Bandcamp. I hope that this small compilation will be usefull and enjoyable thing for any music lovers, percussionists and students.

I made 2014 the date of the release. It’s because they are really old recordings (from my point of view). But also not to make any confusion with recent releases. But then, I may just change my mind at some point and start releasing more classical recordings in the future. Will see.
