New CD with music for solo piano

I have just released a CD with nine compositions for solo piano on the label Euridice Turn Left. It can be ordered at Lawo-store, or by sending an e-mail to me.

The tracks on the CD includes:

- Sculptures of Ice
- Aurora Borealis
- Glacier
- People of the Arctic

All the compositions draw inspiration from the Arctic nature. Much of it has an impressionistic quality, with its musical imagery and reflections on nature. The compositions are pianistic and sometimes virtuosic, with a focus on sound colors and harmonic explorations.

Most of the recording was done in Borge church in Lofoten, on a Steinway model D instrument. The Lofoten archipelago makes for some stunning natural surroundings.

In the area there is also a reconstructed viking castle, the Lofotr vikingmuseum. Highly recommended for a visit.

For photos for the CD cover, I went to the Igloo Hotel in Sorrisniva, a hotel made of snow and ice. It has an absolutely magical atmosphere!

The scores for these compositions are available for download here on this website. You can also order hard copies here.
Here is a small video from the recording session:
