Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen

Publisher: Edition Wilhelm Hansen

...For more than 50 years Gudmundsen-Holmgreen has been stalking the peripheral areas of music - in view of which it is intriguing to note how central his music seems today - Henrik Friis, Politiken


...The energy of Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen's music is derived from the unfathomable diversity of things and from the sparks flying between them when brought together - Karl Aage Rasmussen, Composer


...To Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen (…) simplicity is a rule of conduct. From the simplicity he has generated a language of unexpected contradictions where provocation co-exists with purity, cynicism, and rapture – Tore Mortensen, ARS NOVA
