Notes & Reviews:

Rhízoma, the debut album by prominent Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir, consists of three larger pieces for orchestra and chamber orchestra, punctuated by five smaller movements from a solo percussed piano work. The larger works are given life by two ensembles who couldn't be better suited to the task: the Grammy-nominated Iceland Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Bjarnson perform the cinematic "Dreaming," while the award-winning Icelandic CAPUT Ensemble conducted by Snorri Sigfus Birgisson perform "Streaming Arhythmia" and the opening "Hrím," which was awarded Composition of the Year for 2010 at this year's Icelandic Music Awards. Between these larger works lie five movements from the work "Hidden," performed on prepared piano by percussionist Justin DeHart.
