Notes & Reviews:

Magnus Lindberg, a 42-year-old Finnish composer, is a force to be reckoned with in the 21st century. "Aura" is a powerful, unrelenting work that is played with dead-on precision by the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Aside from the occasional oasis of tonality, the work is harmonically quite strident. Although this is not recommended for the faint-of-ear, it is nonetheless a rewarding and original listening experience for the modern music devotee.
