Notes and Editorial Reviews

The five works on this CD offer a broad perspective on the Faroese composer Sunleif Rasmussen (b. 1961), who continues to be inspired by the elements of nature as well as drawing on a wide range of idioms, periods and styles. In the virtuoso playing of the ensemble Aldubáran, the listener can hear lyrical echoes of traditional folk music, Baroque structures and electronically manipulated sounds, as Rasmussen combines the seven instruments of the ensemble in a wide variety of configurations.
