Firmly rooted tradition and creative freedom

This disc brings us the meetings with the instrument of two central Norwegian composers illustrating the way in which they have with complete success made it fall in with their musical intentions. For both Fartein Valen (1887-1952) and Lasse Thoresen (b. 1949), the pianoforte is their chosen instrument but in spite of this, solo works appear only occasionally among their opus numbers. It is as composers in the larger formats they have won their positions in Norway’s musical landscape. Indeed it is in light of this that these compositions for solo pianoforte are particularly interesting as compact an just as significant aestethic works. Cleansed of instrumentation’s outward elegance and glamour, the very substance of their ceative endeavour is carved out with pitiless clarity.
