Stavanger New Music Ensemble with their CD debut

Stavanger New Music Ensemble with their CD debut! The ensemble is one of the many exciting projects that have come out of the new and fresh musical scene of Stavanger, and their debut under Speculum in 1991 with Schönberg´s “Pierrot Lunaire” was met with sensational reviews: “The concert was a milestone in Stavanger’s musical life.”

Asbjørn Schaathun’s “Triplis+” is a song-cycle with seven movements and is based on computer-manipulated text fragments from Wilhelm Müller´s “Die Schöne Müllerin”. In “1-2-3 Happy Happy Happy”, Jon Øivind Ness plays with the listener through skewness and tiny displacements. There is something filmatic laying over Ketil Hvoslef’s “Clarinet Quintet”, effectively orchestrates with a constant tension between energetic movements and frozen images. The string quartet “Genesis”, a relatively early work by Nils Henrik Asheim, was written during a time when the composer searched for a new fundament for his musical expression. Asheim himself compares this work to a coming-of-age novel, a process of transformation through several stages. The album closes with “November 1962” for piano solo, where Alfred Janson brings the listener into a study of states of mind and gradual developments. The piece is clearly poetic and shows the power of the art of limitation.
