”The sheer amount of classical music composed during the classical period is immense – what is played today is of course much less …” violinist Benedikte Damgaard has told The Violin Channel.
“Sometimes history did a great job at selecting the works to get the spotlight onto the future but sometimes due to many different circumstances, truly beautiful works have been forgotten …” she has said.
“We actively went searching in the national library archives for works that we felt deserved more attention than what they have received.”
