Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Northern Lights" with Kathrin ten Hagen, violin, Itamar Ringel, viola, and the Folkwang Chamber Orchestra under the baton of John Klumpp combines Nordic works by Bull, Vasks, Atterberg, Eliasson and Sibelius.

Ole Bull was a very famous and popular Norwegian violinist and composer, and his tune "Sur la montagne" is as timeless and wide like the solitude and beauty of the high mountains and wide between the fjords in Norway.

Peteris Vasks shows in his work "Vox amoris" the power of love and at the same time the great lyricism, humanity and intensity of the violin together with string orchestra. The great arch begins mysteriously in the distance, and rises into a solo cadenza full of intensity and passion.

The suite op 19, 1 for violin, viola and string orchestra by Kurt Atterberg with the three fanciful sets Prelude, pantomim and vision lives on folk and dance elements that make the connection to the published in March SACD "Eastern Impressions".

Eliasson's Violin Concerto, 1992, stands in stark contrast to "Vox amoris". Its wide melodies are in fact talking about strong, vital and sometimes overlapping rhythms and forms the huge, sometimes frightening overall impression of the work.

Sibelius' suite accesses to the sets "Country Scenery", "Evening in Spring" and "In the Summertime" the thread of the close connection between nature and music back on, before the inner eye contact here wonderful landscapes. In addition, the work sparkles with virtuosity and vitality. - Ars Produktion
