Rasmussen: Andalag - Solo And Ensemble Works
Format: COMPACT DISC
Lützen, Jákup; Aldubáran
Sunleif Rasmussen (b. 1961) is the undisputed pioneer of Faroese classical music, and this album features some of the Faroe Islands’ most talented performers, the New Music ensemble Aldubáran and violist Jákup Lützen. Recorded in Torshavn, the music they present here pivots on Rasmussen’s deft harboring of momentum and energy, his gift for transformative textures, and his closeness to the unique musical traditions and landscapes of the Islands themselves – one of the most beautiful, distinctive and nature-rich archipelagos on earth.
