Marius Noss Gundersen – Winter (from suite Seasons)
Marius sier om verket: – Verket Seasons, skrevet til Christina Sandsengen er en suite i 4 satser som reflekterer over de fire årstidene. Musikken er inspirert av norsk folkemusikk. Våren er en yr liten dans, sommer gjenspeiler late dager på svaberget, høsten er rik på farger med fallende løv og vinter begynner med klart norsk vinterlandskap hvor snøværet blir mer og mer intenst.

Mathilde Grooss Viddal – Reflection 1 og Meditation
Liner notes av Eirik Steinskog:
– Reflection 1 (Viddal/Powell/Halvorsen/Brække), Meditation (Viddal)That the source-material is, so to speak, hidden in the music, makes sense in this context. The hymns and folk-songs, are not here as singular compositions, but as traces of the past, as a sonic archive being reenacted, showing how the past is with us, how heritage is part of who we are, and how contemplating the past – making connections with the past – is not about striving towards something timeless, but about acting in the here and now, using the past to inform our present.

There is a long tradition of relating breath with spirit or soul in Greek “pneuma” and Hebrew “ruach.” Given this tradition, it makes sense listening to wind instruments (both woodwinds and brass), as in a particular way related to the human condition, as a way of giving sound to our basic humanness, breathing soul into the world. On this album, the instruments are affirming a core of human existence, giving us as listeners space to listen and mediate on our place in the world, a place where the echoes of past days are still here, and can be heard at each and every reiterations of a music with a long history, a music that in one sense is old, but in another sense is always also current.
