WorksVariations over variations over a Norwegian folk tune
Songr for orchestra
ArtistsTine Thing Helseth (trumpet)
Norwegian Radio Orchestra
'Variations over Variations' is a great snapshot of contemporary Norwegian orchestral music. The four works enter into a dialogue with existing music and a music history that binds them together, in very different ways. In some places musical quotes open up a door to the Norwegian, in other places it re-contextualises the idea of a national music.
Tine is featured on the title track in Janson's trumpet concerto Variations over variations over a Norwegian folk tune, a variation on Edvard Grieg's 'Ballad in G minor'. Ratkje's Paragraf 112 expands the orchestra's ordinary timbre and establishes a vulnerable openness which later turns darker and more dangerous. Mikalsen's folk-inspired Songr moves between grand orchestral roars and fragile chords, while Vaage's Mylder could be described as a symphonic internet where the surface seems strangely familiar.
