About the work:

In Reflets de cristal  the inspiration, – like in so many other works by Mogens Christensen’s magic pen – is the crystalline. This, however, does not prevent the work from being full of rhythmical variation, untamed liveliness  and … surprises. Or – perhaps a bit more solemnly – expressed by the crystal/prism-fascinated composer: The material of Death – filled with all facets of life’s lights.
