Notes & Reviews:

Geirr Tveitt is indisputably a leading light among Norwegian composers. This release features chamber works that have never before been available on record, works that broaden and deepen our admiration of the artistic gift of Tveitt. Exotic and adventurous, the remarkable musical gift of Tveitt continues to surprise and delight us with 'new' material - 30 years after he left us.
