Northern Timbre (2017)

Nielsen, Sibelius, Grieg

Ragnhild Hemsing, Tor Espen Aspaas

DSD 512 Exclusive

Edvard Grieg (1843–1907), Carl Nielsen (1865–1931) and Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) are generally recognized as the Nordic countries' most important composers. Nielsen and Sibelius were both inspired and influenced in their early years by Grieg's music. Their idiom was strongly Romantic, but they managed to create a distinct "Nordic Sound" in which national elements combined with the broader European tradition.

This album not only shows this, but also probes the way they were inspired by one another. Moreover, the works on this album are among our personal favourites, with a Northern Timbre we feel resonates, no matter where you are.
