Notes and Editorial Reviews

Kim Andre Arnesen is one of Norway’s most frequently performed contemporary composers. International recognition of his music includes a performance of the beautifully evocative Cradle Hymn at the White House for Barack Obama in 2016. Arnesen’s association with Denver’s Kantorei resulted in their commissioning the warmly expressive ‘The gift I’ll leave you’ and the eloquent ‘Making or Breaking.’ ‘Even when He Is Silent’ sets a text written by a prisoner on a concentration camp wall, and Arnesen’s own summing-up of ‘Flight Song’ is that “music making is the song of new life, fragile as the fall of a feather.” Kim Andre Arnesen is one of Norway’s most frequently performed contemporary composers.
