Notes & Reviews:

Per Norgard's 'A Light Hour' is a stimulating and vital percussion manifestation. And the title can be taken quite literally: the music lasts an hour, begins with a bright sound and ends in an elevated mood with a collectively improvised 'note feast'. Originally 'A Light Hour' was an improvisation work from 1986, but in 2008 Per Norgard created this new through-composed version. By way of a wealth of instruments the listener is sent on a percussion journey around the world brilliantly realized by the percussion virtuoso Gert Mortensen and his ensemble Percurama, whose members themselves come from 15 different countries.
