Notes & Reviews:

A seductive and fascinating disc for fans of contemporary music, this collection of works for bassoon with choir and orchestra features work by British composer Setphen Frost and Norwegian composer Kjell Mork Karlsen. The disc's title work Parapraxis, for solo bassoon and choir, melds together a mix of sacred latin text and secular English poetry, pushing and playing with the illusory 'boundary' that seems to exist between the two. The other two works - Frost's Bassoon Concerto and Karlsen's Serenata - are beguiling and stimulating pieces that show off the talents of Norwegian bassoonist Sigyn Birkeland and the Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra.

In demand as a soloist, Sigyn Birkeland has been principal bassoon in the Norwegian Radio Orchestra since 1992. She continues to champion the instrument by commissioning, performing and recording new works for the instrument in a variety of unique ensembles and settings.
