The recording project Northscapes weaves works—from the first decades of the twenty-first century by composers from the Nordic and Baltic countries of Europe—into a tapestry of soundscapes, vibrating between landscape and the imagination, between the external and internal, between nature and psyche. What these works for piano solo share is a particular attunement to nature, reverberating out of the ever-present reservoir of pagan myths, legends, and folk music of the region. Their sensitivity to the sonic environment allows these composers to explore the liminal space dividing yet connecting landscape, soundscape, and mindscape.
Ieva Jokubaviciute says “Northscapes features music by contemporary composers from my native Lithuania plus the music of Latvia, Finland, Norway, Iceland and Denmark.
It’s truly rewarding to look back on the past 2 years of making this album. It was recorded in 2019, then the pandemic hit… but despite the delay, hard work and patience paid off and the album is out into the world! I hope you will join me in celebrating contemporary Baltic & Nordic music through this project.”
