Sensitivity of expression

When listening to Bertil Palmar Johansen’s works for string instruments, one is struck by the composer’s ability to create music with such sensitivity of expression. Even in such a dominant tradition of music for strings, Palmar Johansen manages to find his own approach: his music is a unique, simultaneous combination of melodic material and non-melodic textures. This gives the music the chance to breathe and grow organically, to live its own life, and is part of the secret behind the intimacy of Palmar Johansen’s music. On this album one can hear Palmar Johansen’s vital, gentle, lyrical and colourful works for strings in different combinations, performed by the award-winning ensemble Cikada String Quartet.
