Jakob Kullberg and leading Danish composer Per Nørgård began their collaboration 15 years ago and it has developed every year since, resulting in several works from Nørgård written especially for the cellist. One of these is the piece which gives this album its title, the Cello Concerto No.2 ‘Momentum’.
Written for and premiered by Mstislav Rostropovich, the late Arne Nordheim’s cello concerto ‘Tenebrae’, is perhaps best known through its recording by Truls Mørk. On this CD, Kullberg performs a new orchestration of the work for a smaller sinfonietta ensemble. The title denotes darkness and night - designating the Roman Catholic service of the same name.
The cello also holds a prominent place in the works of renowned Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho. The title of her concerto is ‘Amers’ which means “sea marks” or “bouys”.
“Jakob Kullberg has an amazing control of line, and is always bang in tune even in the most finger-twisting passages.” - Ivan Hewett, Daily Telegraph
