Openness and individuality

This album gives a good insight into the individuality and breadth of expression in today’s Norwegian music. As representatives for one of the earliest composer-generations to come out of the Norwegian Academy of Music, Nils Henrik Asheim and Yngve Slettholm shows what an important institution this academy is for Norwegian music. Only a few years after its foundation one could easily see the academy’s effect on Norwegian music as a vital and necessary addition to the formidable growth in Norwegian musical life since the institution’s establishment. Openness and individuality, and not least an openness towards international currents, has helped shape the composers who’s had their musical formation at the academy, and Asheim’s and Slettholm’s works on this album clearly shows what flagship the Norwegian Academy of Music has been for Norwegian music.
