Notes & Reviews:

Aurum is an award-winning and ambitious choir located in Trondheim. Conductor Bjørn Sagstad is known as one of the foremost conductor capacities within Sinfonietta, choir and orchestra. Composer Ørjan Matre was born in 1979 in Bergen and studied composition at the Norwegian Music Academy. One can often hear traditional elements in Matre's music.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
A very fine album by Ila Brass Band, named for the district of Trondheim, Norway, where it is based. Founded in 1972, the 30-piece ensemble plays tastefully, makes truly beautiful sounds, and has loads of technical skill. The works are very attractive, and all are unfamiliar to me. The big piece is the program's finale: Matre's 21-minute Klang(!) (2001) for brass band and electronics. Harmonically abstract but dramatically gripping, the work abounds in fascinating effects, includes beautiful solos, and engages ensemble and listener in many ways.
