Multi-dimentional and engaging contemporary music

“Orkan” (Hurricane, Tempest) is a cycle of musical works to texts by Sigbjørn Obstfelder – conceived as a whole with the inclusion of spoken texts.

Sigbjørn Obstfelder (1866-1900) is one of the most important writers in late 19th century Norway, and among the first modernists in this country. Asheim’s music to Obstfelders text is multi-dimentional and engaging contemporary music in chamber format – performed with temperament and élan on this recording.

Nils Henrik Asheim is a very active and sought after composer, earlier this year the Vertavo Quartet devoted an entire CD to his chamber works for strings – a release which gained fantastic reviews and created a lot of attention.
