The catalyst for the idea was the fact that most of Ketil Hvoslef’s chamber works had not been recorded and that, in view of their consistently high quality, deserved larger international attention and exposure. Thus, the idea to document all 38 works on CD arose, and the record company LAWO Classics agreed to come on board.
Collaboration with the performers is intrinsic to Hvoslef’s work as a composer. By trying out his ideas in dialogue with the players, a higher refinement of the details is achieved and the score is altered accordingly. This is an important part of the compositional process.
The recordings draw from the vast pool of performers in Bergen, where the composer lives and works, in order to facilitate a closer collaboration between composer and players on every single work up to the time of the actual recording. The performers are primarily from the Grieg Academy (University of Bergen / Bergen University College) and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, with the addition of some musicians from other Scandinavian countries. The aim of the recordings is to help promote the establishment of a performance practice for Hvoslef’s music.
