Notes & Reviews:

This beautiful live recording, featuring the Cikada Ensemble performing the music of composers Liza Lim and Jon Ĝivind Ness, was made at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Since its formation in Oslo in 1989, the Cikada Ensemble has developed a refined and highly acclaimed profile on the international contemporary music scene. In concerts at major international festivals and on numerous albums, Cikada's distinct ensemble profile manifests itself in strong programming. Integral to this work is a wish to develop long-term collaborations with composers, and to build composer portraits with commissioned works over time. The nine musicians also form various formations within the group: Cikada String Quartet and Cikada Trio work as independent units, adding to the ensemble's international identity. Cikada was awarded the prestigious Nordic Music Prize in 2005.
