About the work:

Several flutists have shown an interest in the recorder piece Vårnatsfugle.  At first, the piece was transposed and changed a bit (in the version, which Kerstin Thiele performs on PACD 110). Later, in cooperation with flutist Craig Goodmann, it was revised in order to obtain a more flute idiomatic version, which is now the final version that counts.

Reviews:

… fløjten er de lange melodiske åndedrag og vinden, der spiller (flerstemmigt) i et rør, man svinger rundt – og ikke mindst de korte signaler, fuglefløjtene, sat sammen på rapsodisk vis.
