CDM 3002-2 Karin Rehnqvist – Live

A truly fascinating CD, in our Modern Series. Karin Rehnqvist is a remarkable composer much inspired from
musik from Norrland, with the special singing kalled “jojk”. Karin Rehnqvist selected the pieces that were
to go into this CD, herself. Particularely, the 4th track with its intruiging echo effects between soloist
and trumpet is truly thrilling.
“To the Angel with the fiery hands,” is equally fascinating, where the tonal spheres seems to balance on
eternity. Equally remarkable is the “Hymn” written for the Royal wedding between Crown Princess Victoria
and Daniel Westling.
Here are Karin Rehnqvists own words:
“This time I´am going to have to go all out. No dull middle registers.
For a wedding dynamism, courage and joy are the lodestars”.
No wonder this marriage has become a resounding success!

A truly great awardwinning recording!
