The composer Henning Sommerro moves rapidly, criss-crossing his musical stage. The space in which he moves has expanded: "All the world's a stage". In an open room unforeseeable things take place; things mature, and grow. New elements are created, old ones are modified, and earlier contours are erased. With a respectful greeting we are drawn on by the promise of something bigger; the title UJAMAA sounds playful, slightly mystical. It is Swahili, and it means coming together in brotherhood. Where opposites meet there is hope – that precious quality we carry with us that can foreshadow our way ahead. On this album Henning Sommerro invites us to listen to two of his large-scale works for soloists and orchestra: Ujamaa and The Iceberg. Both are composed as cantatas. In Ujamaa we move, as if in a series of dream-pictures, between the world's five continents. In The Iceberg interpersonal relationships are manifested through the voice of Eva Sars, wife of the explorer, scientist, diplomat, humanist and Nobel laureate Fridtjof Nansen. In these works there is a tension between large-scale and small-scale spheres – this in a background narrative in which hope is a steadfast element. Art should be a genuine echo of the artist's intentions and perceptions. In the classical music tradition these are transmitted through a score, and are then handed on as if through a chain of handshakes, from the composer to the performer, interleaved in the creative process of the recording arts – and then to the listener. Featured soloists: Lena Willemark ("kulning" and vocal), John Pål Inderberg (saxophones), Rik De Geyter (bass clarinet), Espen Aalberg (percussion), Eir Inderhaug (soprano) and Florin Demit (baritone). 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos + 7.1.4 Auro-3D + 5.1 SURROUND + STEREO Produced in DXD (Digital eXtreme Definition 352.8kHz/24bit) by Lindberg Lyd, Norway
