Description: Tarp was one of the most prominent Danish composers of his time, boasting a large and versatile body of work which more or less has survived in obscurity. This series now sheds new light on a selection of Tarp’s orchestral works, opening chronologically with some suites, overtures, and two small concertos. These are early and charming works that show a development from an elegant late Romanticism in the 1933 Folk Song Suite towards the more neoclassical style in the other works which date from 1936-42, which later became one of Tarp’s hallmarks. The contents of the future two volumes in this series are given in the booklet and, yes, there are symphonies! Three of them!
