About

Peruvian-born, American-trained conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya, is inspired to look at how music, like the poetic concept of peace, can unite the world. The idea behind Journeys is to create an example of that unity in a tangible form by bringing together music from every continent into one album. With works inspired by myths and mechanics, cosmic motion and human emotion, originating from Europe and the Americas to Africa, Asia and Australasia, the themes in this collection of world premiere recordings range as widely as their origins.

This unique programme of world premiere orchestral works is one with a mission. Based in Oslo, the home of the Nobel Peace Prize, conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra have sought to explore places that are not normally associated with symphonic music. All of these recordings are world premieres of works by living composers writing music for and connecting directly with the 21st century.
