introduction

A programme full of contrasts: between symphonic sonority and vocal intensity, for example. Or between the composers, all from the far North, all from the contemporary era but each with a very distinctive approach and vision of composing. Some withdrawn and individual (such Pärt and Tormis), others belonging to a collective of like-minded musicians (Bjarnason), but all of them immune to any dictates regarding style.
