Behind-the-scenes documentary from the recording sessions in Selbu Church. Teamwork and a lively musical inquisitiveness are core values, and under the direction of cellist and educator Øyvind Gimse, who has been artistic director since 2002, the orchestra’s musicians have developed the virtuosity and confidence that allow them to play what they want, when they want, and to take chances rather than play safe.
REFLECTIONS: Composers reflect their contemporary world, and today’s performers mirror our time. The three works on this album all have a high degree of intensity and a strong personal character, as tributes, visions, fantasies, interpretations. As musical reflections they have these qualities in common, but at the same time they are very different works composed by three distinct musical personalities. Passion. Perfection. Raw intensity. With these fundamentals, the chamber orchestra TrondheimSolistene is carving out its own musical images in immersive audio.
