Modes and Moves AlbumPurchased

Modes and Moves is the title for the first CD release by the composer Kari Beate Tandberg. She has been a composer since 1995 - the debut album includes 5 central works from the last ten years. The collection comprises a wide range of works, from a solo piano piece to large-scale work with 33 musicians. The CD also includes a string quartet, a piano quartet and one work for enlarged sinfonietta. 
The music is colorful, insistent and dramatic.

 The title Modes and Moves belongs to the opening work on the CD. The piece is performed by the Stockholm Winds, conducted by Christian Lindberg in a live recording from the Berwald Concert Hall, Stockholm.

The pianist Joachim Kwetzinsky and the string players Henrik and Odd Hannisdal (violin), Gunhild Hindar (viola) and Morten Hannisdal (violincello) are the main artists in this release. Kwetzinsky commissioned the Displacements for piano solo (2015) and he also performs in the piano quintet Attitudes II. This work also includes the actor Gjertrud Jynge (The Norwegian Theater). 
The Hannisdal brothers are part of the Cikada String quartet (Nordic Council Music Prize 2005). Gunhild, Henrik and Morten are members of the Norwegian Radio Orchestra whilst Odd is member of the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet Orchestra.

The piece Optophonia for enlarged sinfonietta (2005) is performed by Master students from the Norwgian Academy of Music, conducted by Sigmund Thorp.

 The recording is from a concert in 2007, presenting the research program by Tandberg - as part of her work with the Norwegian Artistic Research Fellowship Programme.

 All recordings are from live performances or recorded at dress rehearsals. This adds extra nerve and presence to the expression. The booklet displays an interesting portrait of the composer Kari Beate Tandberg. The release is supported by Arts Council Norway and the Norwegian Society of Composers.
