Nordic; Musica Vitae Chamber Orchestra
It is definitely stimulating and challenging for an arranger to create unity between a folk trio and a chamber orchestra; let alone between different styles of music and instrumental playing. The Nordic Symphonic project; with its meeting of the Nordic trio and a classical orchestra; is a great example of the kind of musical cross-fertilisation one can only dream of. In this collaboration Nordic’s intricate swing-based style is set against the broader sound palette of the orchestra: the trio sets off on a whirlwind adventure; with sounds from across the whole planet; and the orchestra follows along.
