Notes and Editorial Reviews
Marcus Paus (b. 1979) is one of the most sought after Norwegian composers. His catalogue includes numerous chamber, solo, choral and orchestral works, along with several operas, and music for stage and screen. He is noted for having re-embraced tradition, tonality and melody, and has been lauded by critics in Norway and abroad. Paus was named Composer of the Year 2017 by the Norwegian Music Publishers Association. This release presents a diverse cross-section of the Paus’s output, from the darkly colored to the resolutely joyful. Perhaps a particular highlight is Love’s Last Rites for solo violin and strings played with sumptuous beauty by the great Henning Kraggerud.
