CHRONOTOPE FOR CLARINET LAWO Classics is pleased to present a rare treat: A newly written, Norwegian Clarinet Concerto! Bjørn Kruse’s “Chronotope” was premiered in Oslo Concert Hall in January 2016, with solist Fredrik Fors, conductor Christian Eggen and the Oslo Philharmonic, and recorded at the same venue six months later. In the composer’s own words: The title “Chronotope” is a term used by the Russian literary philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975) to describe how an awareness of time and space (“chronos” and “topos”) is represented in language and discourse. I find that the term also naturally applies as a model to the experience of temporal and spatial dimensions in musical "discourse", where the immediate memory of events in the past, and the expectations of events in the future, fills and enriches the moment of listening. Music creates its own chronotope, a spacious ‘now’, colored by the sensory perception of a past, present, and future. Bjørn Kruse (*1946) studied at UCLA, California, and the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, where he taught from 1976. He became Professor of Composition in 1997 and is today Professor Emeritus. His list of works numbers more than 150, from chamber and choral music to larger orchestral works and four operas. Fredrik Fors is one of Scandinavia's leading clarinetists. In addition to being a soloist and chamber musician Fors has held the position of co-principal clarinetist of the Oslo Philharmonic since 1995. The Oslo Philharmonic, founded in 1919, is a world-renowned orchestra counting more than 100 musicians. Conductor, composer and pianist Christian Eggen is one of the most influential figures on the Norwegian music scene. His field of expertise ranges from contemporary music to film, theatre, jazz, opera and classical music.
