Description: The ubiquitous Holberg Suite notwithstanding, there are still 40 minutes of rare Norwegian repertoire on this disc: Kvandal's two-movement sonata from 1994, a tonal yet hard-edged and bracing 13-minute work, Grüner-Hegge's romantic little five-minute Elegy and, the biggest-scale piece, Nystedt's four-movement, 21-minute Concerto Arctandriae of 1991, whose tense, anxious and brittle quality will make you think of works of similar genre from between the two World Wars. But you won't find any information about its title or, in fact, anything I've just told you in the notes which are of the performers, by the performers and for the performers. At least they're very good performers... Ensemble Allegria.
