About

Magnus Lindberg is one of today’s most acclaimed living composers. He currently serves as the New York Philharmonic’s composer-in-residence. This new recording showcases his famed skills as an orchestral composer.

Seht die Sonne (“Behold the Sun”, 2007) is an ideal example of his recent, more approachable style.

Grafitti (2009) is Magnus Lindberg’s first large-scale choral work with orchestra, which earned him the 2009 Finnish Composer Society’s Award. The sung texts are a selection of 2000-year-old Latin graffiti inscriptions from the walls of excavated Pompeii houses.

Sakari Oramo and the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra are experienced champions of their compatriot’s music - their recording of Sculpture / Campana in aria / Concerto for orchestra was listed by the New York Times among a selection of the 22 most notable recordings of 2008.
