Frank Nordensten: Organ Concertos AlbumPurchased

HIRES formats:

ORGAN CONCERTOS Frank Nordensten has written works in most genres, and for different instrumentations, but the instrument that fascinates him the most and the one he always gravitates back to is the organ. The organ works are at the centre of his output, in which he carries on the Central European symphonic organ tradition. This recording features his second and third organ concertos. "Concerto No. 2" is a virtuosic dialogue between the organ and the orchestra using a purely instrumental approach and with no philosophical attempt to create an illusion. "Concerto No. 3", on the other hand, was inspired by how time predominates in our perceptions. The composer attempts to transport the listener into a more timeless dimension, in part, by alluding to the size of the universe through the titles of the movements such as “Venus” and “Satellite. Frank Nordensten (b. 1955) began composing at the age of twelve, earning accolades as both performer and composer in his teenage years. He started his formal music education at the Norwegian Academy of Music in 1975 and later set out to learn composition. Dan René Dahl (b. 1967) began learning to play the organ at age fifteen. He studied at the Norwegian Academy of Music from 1989-1993 and is today principal organist at Fredrikstad Cathedral. The Norwegian Wind Ensemble is a unique orchestra based in Østfold County in southeastern Norway. It is the only civilian ensemble of its kind in Norway and is comprised of 24 of the country’s leading professional musicians. Tore Erik Mohn (b. 1961) is choirmaster at Fredrikstad Cathedral.
