Notes & Reviews:

Under the Wing of the Rock features music from Norway and the British Isles, all of it composed within the last seventy years. Not surprisingly, the musical idiom is modern, but at the same time the composers whose works are performed here - Benjamin Britten, Sally Beamish, Arne Nordheim, Olav Anton Thommessen and Henning Kraggerud - all find inspiration in earlier musical styles and traditions. These five composers are very diverse, and the pieces played here by viola soloist Soon-Mi Chung are of contrasting moods, from the singingly lyrical to the impulsively tempestuous. Hybrid Super Audio-CD 5.1 SURROUND STEREO produced in DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition 352kHz/24bit) by Lindberg Lyd, Norway This compact disc looks like a normal CD and plays on all standard players and computers.
