Wind Blows on SACD

"the wind blows" is the title of this album with choral music by the rather unique Norwegian composer Alfred Janson. We are talking contemporary music here, but not the gritty kind. Here beautiful melodies blend with modern means of expression; music that has it's root in the Norwegian folk music treasure. The composer himself participates with his well-loved melodica and there are several instrumental soloists as well. This is a worthy continuation of the Norwegian Soloists' Choir's contribution to the recording of worthwhile music. The Norwegian Soloists' Choir is one of Norway's leading ensembles in any genre and among the foremost chamber choirs in Europe. The choir is equally at home in the classical/romantic repertoire and in contemporary music, making regular excursions into folk-derived music and National Romantic works. The Choir was founded in 1950 by the composer Knut Nystedt, who was it's conductor for forty years. In 1990 he was succeeded by Grete Pedersen, who remains the choir's artistic director to this day.
