Three Norwegian contemporary composers

This album collects the works of three central Norwegian contemporary composers, Kjell Mørk Karlsen, Frank Tveor Nordenstein and Jon Mostad, in a variety of musical genres. Mørk Karlsen presents his “Musica Demica”, a piece for nine wind instruments and double bass, a light-hearted game between instruments, and his “Symphony No. 3 (The Ice Palace)”, inspired by author Tarjei Vesaas’ novel of the same name, a work of watchful mood, portraying isolation and other unspoken feelings in an elegant way. Tveor Nordenstein, on the other hand, presents the extremely intense piano-piece “Tunnels”, a work only for exceptional pianists (here performed by Jørgen Larsen) and the minimalistic “String Quartet No. 1”. The album closes with Jon Mostad’s phenomenal “Song for Orchestra”, here performed by The London Philharmonic Orchestra, containing both dramatic, surging passages to delicate, introspective ones where the work seems for a moment to hold its breath, without letting go of the form or the momentum.
