Description: This shortish (52 min.) program of lyrical effusions for soloist(s) and orchestra was instigated by the two soloists, longtime friends who also provide the short notes. We offer it primarily for Nordic collector completists since the eight-minute Borgstrøm piece is a premiere but the remaining pieces aren’t exactly standard repertoire either. Arvid Engegård (violin), Knut Erik Sundqvist (double bass), Norwegian Radio Orchestra; Terje Boye Hansen.
