Image Juloratorium - Gammal svensk julkantat
Christmas Oratorio: A light in the darkness
"Nature around Lake Orsa, with its blue mountains, burning sunsets and shadowy forests, has strongly influenced the musical language in my Christmas Oratorio. Many years ago I used to sit by the lake and dream. Some of the dreams moved around this music. The words are taken partly from the Bible, John Prolog, and from Christmas story. Mary's lullaby, which is present in the second part, uses the words of Lope de Vega. The two parts of the Oratorio is framed by the orchestral Intermezzo with its motto: The light shines in darkness, and the darkness has not overcome thereby".

Old Swedish Christmas Cantata: Brutally the Cathedral School
"Old Swedish julkantat, to the words of Oscar Levertin, is of a different kind. The poet drew inspiration from old times 'djäknesång' as it was practiced at the cathedral schools in the old times. The early eighteenth century forming the fund of the poem and the rather long text depicts, in both beautiful stanzas and brutal reality, a year in the "djäknar's" life. Burlesque is not missing. The solistical piano part, I wrote especially for my longtime friend and colleague Per Thunarf."

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's final masterpiece was commissioned in 1791 by the Austrian Count Franz von Walsegg, as a tribute to the Count's only 21 years young deceased wife Anna. Mozart began his Requiem in Prague, tormented by an indefinable disease which would eventually take his life, thus depriving him of the opportunity to complete that his magnum opus. After Mozart's death, asked his pupil and assistant Franz Xaver Süss completed by the composer's wife, to complete the work, which he is said to have done in 100 days. It was first performed January 2, 1793 on a private concert for the benefit of Mozart bereaved widow Constanze Mozart.

A wonderful collection of known and less known X-mas songs for choir with a fresh new Swedish vocal ensemble of eight teenage girls. They are sounding extremely well - intonation, expression, vocal quality, arrangements - and give us a rich Christmas feling and sometimes the most unexpected twists and turns of songs we thought we´ve heard enough, mangled by plenty of singers through the years. These young voices raise the torn music to new heights.

Image Lucia
For the Swedish, the Feast of Saint Lucia signals the onset of Christmas and is the highlight of the Advent season. Folklore suggests that the roots of Lucia history begin in Syracuse, Italy, around 300 A.D. when an innocent, young girl was coveted by a local Nobleman. When she refused his advances, he had her condemned as a Christian and attempted to have her burned. Legend has it that she emerged unharmed by the flames.

2007 provided the choir Stockholm Singers and its conductor Bo Aurehl with an opportunity to celebrate Lucia in the great hall of the Nordiska muséet in Stockholm. The atmosphere was magical, the audience was captivated and a repeat the following year was a forgone conclusion.

This recording featuring soloist Mezzosoprano Susann Végh allows us to recapture these enchanted moments.

Image Collegamento
Inspelningarna är till stor del resultatet av ett samarbete mellan tonsättaren och de internationellt hyllade italienska musiker som medverkar på skivan. De flesta verk har haft sina uruppföranden i Italien, bl. a. i Rom och Florens.
Tonsättaren och musikvetaren Odd Sneeggen tog upp komponerandet på 2000-talet efter en lång paus då han var verksam som projektledare och konstnärlig ledare i det svenska och det internationella musiklivet.
Titeln "Collegamento" anspelar på den för tonsättaren outgrundliga interaktion som uppkommer mellan musiken, musikerna och publiken i en lyssningssituation.

Image Vindharpor
Music is dreams and memories. When I write, it's about trying to make real a fleeing vision, as if you were imagining a completely obscure landscape, briefly illuminated by a bright flash. Everything is clear, sharp. Efforts of notation, instrumentation, form, and the many other things that belong to the composer's profession - it is a profession and not a call - are actually secondary. All that matters is to capture the fleeing clarity you for a brief second guessed. Sometimes it can take years, even decades, to reach that point. Then the poem is an inspirational support to stick to. The powerful poetry of the Bible and the great poets' images are inexhaustible sources of beauty and wisdom. To me words and tone are inextricably linked together. Therefore I prefere writing for the human voice, this wonderful and enigmatic instrument.

Image Das Jahr
The piano cycle ”Das Jahr” (The Year) was completed
in December 1841. At the age of thirty-six, Fanny Mendelssohn Hensel succeeded in
producing a major piano composition, which dramatically
expanded the scope of the small-scale piano pieces she had hitherto
In the spring of 1840 Fanny wrote to her sister Rebecka: ”I have
composed a lot recently and I have named the short piano pieces
after my favourite places. Some of the pieces came into my mind
whilst I was in the places themselves, others were composed whilst
reflecting memories of wonderful excursions. Henceforth the cycle
will be a pleasant souvenir, a kind of second diary.” The composer
left out all allusions to her favourite places in the manuscript and
these Italy-inspired piano pieces got their names from the twelve
months instead. But if one compares them to the corresponding
months spent in Italy, there are often similarities in atmosphere
between her feelings expressed musically and those described in
her diary.
The idea of representing the year in a cycle of twelve pieces was
original and presumably unique in the literature for the piano.
After Fanny’s sudden death, following a stroke in May 1847, these
pieces were forgotten. Nearly 150 years of neglect came to an end
in 1989 with the publication of the composition in a Furore Edition.

Detta är den tredje Cdn i utforskandet av finska romanser på svenska med Christin Högnabba, sopran/Stefan Lindgren, piano. Hela skivan ägnas musik av den mycket produktive finske tonsättaren Erik Fordell (1917-1981). Han tillhörde den tonsättargeneration som kom att framträda i större sammanhang på 1950-talet, och för vilken de efterkrigstida årens
modernistiska strävanden innebar en svår, och för många av generationens tonsättare oöverkomlig utmaning. Hans över 540 solosånger är mycket expressionistiska och spänner över ett rikt känsloregister.

Image Nest of Silence
In Göran Agdur's music the simple cantabile melody has always been central. A simplicity carried by a very personal voice. His music has been described as very romantic - which in its gushing arpeggione style sometimes is shaded by an intonation, which may suggest Swedish folk music, not so surprising as Agdur, on his father's side, descends from the "fiddler's village" Orsa in Dalarna. Agdur also has other musical influences, which probably - consciously or subconsciously - have been with him since his teens. Singers like Billy Fury, John Leyton, Nico Fidenco and Salvatore Adamo are examples of vocalists who have been a great inspiration. Agdur's music was first composed and played on piano solo, but has also been performed on violin and piano, and flute and guitar. The "Russian Chamber Orchestra", under the leadership of conductor Sergei Proskourin, has performed a Suite (compositions throughout the years by Agdur), arranged specifically for this orchestra.

Image Fragmente und Hymnus
Staffan Björklund's output is copious and varied, ranging from chamber music to oratorios and music drama, but works for organ and piano represent the core of his activity. Peaks of his achievement include the two suites Dialogues pour piano seul (1991) and Modulationer (1999), preceded among other things by four piano sonatas. In performances of his own music he has shown himself to be an outstanding musician and instrumentalist. Although clearly related to one another, the suites (both in twelve movements) bring out different sides of his nature and thinking. The dialogues have a much freer, extempore imagination of form, while the movements of Modulationer are more disciplined. At the centre of things is an expansive, colourful and often explosively charged harmony. The linear process, melody and polyphony are also lavishly constructed. Both works rank among the foremost achievements of Swedish piano music and have more in common with both French and Russian music (Messiaen, Skryabin) than with Swedish and German tradition. In a number of works he harks back to the music of earlier periods, e.g. to the Baroque master Dandrieu (Homage à Dandrieu). Björklund has also composed operas: Oratorium över Carl Fredrik Hill, 1981 (libretto by Lars Norén), Prins Hatt under jorden, 1988 (libretto by Sven Smedberg) and Mästerkatten, 1995 (Libretto by Lennart Hellsing). Melodic fluency and alternation between stern technical discipline and an air of improvisation are among the characteristics of his tonal language.

Image Missa Maria Magdalena 1996 version
Missa Maria Magdalena was commissioned by Judith Linder, choir leader at Maria Magdalena Church, and was first performed in April 1995 with Olle Persson singing the part of Jesus and Johanna Nyström as Mary Magdalene. Maria Magdalena Motet choir and Stockholm Wind Symphonics were conducted by Mika Eichenholz, with Judith Linder and Ragnar Bohlin as assisting choir conductors in different areas of the church. The building is big and the distances between the performers were sometimes up to 30 meters because the whole church space is used for this Mass. This makes recording very difficult, as the difference in sound timing between the utmost performers can be more than a tenth of a second, thus putting great demands on technical recording solutions - all microphones (more than 40 mikes were used in this session) need individual timing, delay or real time, calculated on where the item is placed in relation to the others - just to make all sounds audible simultaneously. In 1996, this LIVE documentary recording of the Missa Maria Magdalena was made with Olle Persson singing the part of Jesus and Boel Adler as Maria Magdalena. A third production was made in 2005, released as nosagCD137, once again with Olle Persson as Jesus and now Annika Skoglund in the role of Mary Magdalene, with Stockholm Wind Symphonics conducted by Ragnar Bohlin.

Det kom en idé från enhetschefen för administration och service, Birgitta Wahlström. "Skulle inte ni musiker med alla era körer kunna göra en julskiva och att intäkterna får gå till Härbärget?" Jag tog med mig idén till musikerna i Eskilstuna församling. Alla tyckte det var en bra idé. I flera års tid har vi ju haft Jul-sing along i Klosters kyrka där kollekten har gått till Härbärget. Så varför inte spela in en Jul-CD också? En kommitté tillsattes för att fundera över innehållet på CDn. Vi enades efter en del funderande om att alla vuxenkörer skulle delta och att varje kör som vill också får göra ett eget spår. Antingen helt själva eller tillsammans med någon annan kör. Vi ville också att alla körer skulle sjunga tillsammans på några spår. Orgeln måste få ljuda. Solister måste få sjunga. Att få visa den musikaliska bredden i vår församling var också viktigt. Så blev det också. Med stolthet kan vi konstatera att skivan bjuder på stor bredd. Från orgelsolo till kör a cappella. Traditionellt och nytt. De olika körerna med lite olika inriktning har visat fram sina bästa sidor. Vi musiker framträder med en alldeles egen kör förstärkt på manssidan av goda körsångare. Några professionella musiker har ställt upp och kompat våra körer utan betalning.

Denna dubbla CD-extra innehåller Stellan Sagviks kompletta musik för piano solo, och dessutom alla noter som pdf-filer inlagda på skivorna. Stellan Sagviks musik är expressiv och den knyter an till den fritonala stil som haft en relativt stark ställning i svensk musik, också under mer modernistiskt orienterande perioder. Möjligen kan man även spåra en del ryska influenser, ibland med viss stilistisk närhet till exempelvis Sjostakovitj. Sagviks musik är inte alltid enkel eller förenklad, men dess kärvare sidor är förankrade i ett berättande som ändå gör den tillgänglig.

Swedish composer Stellan Sagvik's music is expressive and connected to the freetone style that has had a relatively prominent status in Swedish music, even during more modernist periods. There are also possible traces of Russian influences, at times with a stylistic proximity to Shostakovich. Sagvik's music is not always simple or simplified, but its harsher sides are anchored in a narrative bedrock that renders it nonetheless accessible.

Image Ett tyskt Requiem
Stockholms Domkyrkokör
Michael Waldenby


Ein deutsches Requiem är ett utomordentligt fint, personligt och karakteristiskt uttryck för Johannes Brahms varma medmänsklighet och odogmatiska religiositet. Här finns alla de element som bär verkligt stor dikt: den hjälper oss att leva och den hjälper oss att dö. Tonsättaren har lyckats förena sublim enkelhet med stor konstfullhet - ofta så långt driven att den inte märks utan upplevs som helt naturlig. Att analysera verket är därför egentligen helt överflödigt, och kanske bara intressant rent teoretiskt. Orden och tonerna, intimt förenade med varandra, talar för sig själva.

Verkets sju olika avsnitt har vart och ett sin egen karaktär. Samtidigt bildar de olika avsnitten en oupplöslig och logisk enhet, en enhet som först så småningom växte fram i tonsättarens medvetande. Redan satsernas tonartsföljd bidrar i sin klara logik till ett intryck av helhet och harmoni. Det är inte alls förvånande att många skönjer en linje från upplysningstidens stora tänkare fram till just Brahms och hans verk, i synnerhet hans requiem.


The first English performance of Ein deutsches Requiem took place July 10th, 1871 in the home of the pianist and composer Kate Loder, later Lady Thompson, the wife of surgeon Sir Henry Thompson. Her fellow pianist was eighty year old Cipriano Potter and the baritone soloist was Julius Stockmeyer. They used a piano duet version prepared by the composer. This version has become known as the London Version.

Tonsättaren Johan Hammerth och pianisten Stefan Lindgren presenterar på nosag records den andra volymen i den planerade kompletta utgåvan av Hammerths pianopreludier. Denna utgåva innehåller tolv preludier, de nyaste så färska som från 2011 och spännvidden på uttryck är ännu större än den på volym 1 från 2010 - från viskande dockdans till eruptivt kraftfull och polyrytmisk motorik. Fortsättning följer under 2012.

Orgeln i Vadstena byggdes 1933 av Setterquist & Son i Örebro. Dess äldsta delar härstammar från kyrkans första orgel, byggd av Gustav Andersson 1833. Denna orgel hade sin plats i Brödrakoret i kyrkans östra del där i dag huvudaltaret har sin plats. 1881 byggdes orgeln om av E A Setterquist och fi ck ett stort antal stämmor utbytta. 1897 genomgick kyrkan en genomgripande omgestaltning och orgelverket fl yttades av orgelbyggare J Magnusson i Göteborg till sin nuvarande plats vid västra väggen. Orgelhus och fasad nytillverkades och ett par stämmor utbyttes. 1958 utfördes en omdisponering i orgelrörelsens anda av orgelbyggare Mårtensson i Lund. Flera stämmor förändrades eller ersattes med neobarocka klanger. Orgelns instrumentala helhet gick förlorad. 2009 utförde Tostareds kyrkorgelfabrik en noggrann och skicklig restaurering av pipverket som då återställdes i ursprungligt skick. Organisten Jan H Börjesson presenterar på denna CD orgeln i sin fulla glans.

Image Violin Duos Vol 4
Duo Gelland continues to explore new music for two violins. In vol 4 we meet composers born in the 70´s and a wide stylistic journey offers both surprises and contemplation. Duo Gelland recieved many awards and several of their Violin Duo Cds were priced both in Sweden and abroad. Duo Gelland about this CD: "It all happened in the north around the turn of the millennium. Different circumstances and coincidences made our paths cross. And so we met six intriguing composers having little in common besides a Nordic connection and being born in the early 70s. At SubArcticOpen in Piteå 2001 on the north Swedish coast, a composer couple caught our attention. Two years later we met again on the Faroe Islands at the Music Festival Summartónar, Komponistmøte Nordkalotten (Cap of the North). Sanna Ahvenjärvi and Tapio Lappalainen were then students at the Mozarteum. We were attracted to their individually very different musical voices, but also to the dynamics between them. It excited us to hear, that they would like to compose a duo each for us."

Image Scener ur det förgångna
Denna skiva är resultatet av ett långvarigt samarbete mellan sångerskan & kompositören Cecilia Jonshult och gitarristen, arrangören & kompositören Johan Berke. Tonvikten ligger på en svit av Johan Berkes nya arrangemang av Lille Bror Söderlundhs Ferlin-tonsättningar i urval. Denna svit ramas in av duons egna kompositioner och två tolkningar av äldre folkmusik-låtar med kyrkligt motiv. Den ena, som avslutar skivan, Legenden om S:ta Magdalena, härstammar från medeltiden.
Scener ur det förgångna är en odyssé genom skiftande musikaliska landskap men med en sammanhållande tematisk röd tråd.

Image Johan Hammerth - Piano Preludes
"The Swedish composer Johan Hammerth (see website) confesses that he cannot stop writing Piano Preludes. By December 2010 he was working on his 48th. His creative compulsion can be traced to his hearing the Shostakovich preludes and fugues. He tells us that in 1999 he wrote 24 preludes and that these "emanate from four basic moods, with six different expressions. Some of them have an affinity with each other." Numbers 25-32 are for the left-hand and are dedicated to the poet Thomas Tranströmer. Hammerth's idiom accommodates gently-stated dissonance and does so within unadorned resounding textures. He presents his often obsessive and repetitively patterned ideas in subtle mesmeric monochromes. The element of repetition and the bare landscape allows the listener more easily to appreciate these very serious pieces most of which run between 3:30 and 6:00. A good example is No. 3 which has a nagging carolling note-cell around which other cells are steadily swirled. The writing can be assertive, protesting and driven. And when it is not following this path Hammerth tracks his concentrated way through dreamy nocturnal territory as in the Chopin-reminiscent Nos. 25 and 28. It may be that there is more dynamic variation in this music than we hear in this recording. Despite the Shostakovich exemplary fugal activity is not part of Hammerth's armoury - at least not here. The romantic Russian piano tradition means a great deal to him and you can hear this at the start of Preludium 11 and the truly breathtaking and slow-babbling 31. He was born in Kalmar and educated at Stockholm's Royal College of Music (1982-1990) where his teachers included Sven-David Sandström, Pär Lindgren, Daniel Börtz, and Lars-Erik Rosell. His Piano Concerto (1989-1990) was dedicated to Sven-David Sandström. His Piano Concerto No. 2 (1993-1995) was premiered by Bengt-Åke Lundin. While the piano is at the core of his creativity he has said that string instruments are his "musical lungs". His catalogue includes three string quartets (1989, 1995, 2003), Symphony No. 1 (2000), Stockholm Cantata (1997), Eruption (1987) and Confront (1985) for orchestra and a series of concertos for violin (1987, 1994, 2002), cello (1998), percussion (1995), Flute (1992) and bassoon (1986). Pianist Stefan Lindgren, who is also a composer, here plays 17 of the preludes (here termed 'Preludium') and does so with every appearance of total absorption in these substantial pieces.. It's a liberal assortment with the disc running close to capacity. We are told there will be more to come in a further CD later in 2011. The second disc will be worth looking out for and I hope soon to hear his orchestral concert music. This is music that weaves a hypnotic spell. It is deeply romantic and seems to speak of losing the self in contemplation."

This is the first volume of a complete edition on CD of Piano Preludes by Swedish composer Johan Hammerth. The composer himself writes about his preludes:
"The Prelude genre appeals to me - free, however yet structure and thought. Schostakovich´s preludes and fugues are something I often study, and it was because of the discovery of this music I decided to compose piano preludes. 1999 I wrote 24 preludes. This has given me a taste for more, I keep on going, I have to, an ongoing process. The first 24 Preludes emanate from four basic moods, with six different expressions. Some of them have an affinity with each other. Prelude 25-32 are original compositions for the left hand, dedicated to Thomas Tranströmer; moods that draws heavily on the great poet's lyricism. These pieces I play almost daily, with both hands. So here is a choice. While I am today (Dec. 2010) getting close to prelude 48, composing preludes is as inspiring as at the start in 1999. It's been 11 years since I wrote Prelude 1 and probably these cycles are contributing to my development and, above all, my relationship deepened with my own instrument, the piano, and today I can barely imagine life without a new prelude."

The virtuoso pianist Stefan Lindgren, also a composer - very handy when it comes to interpreting complicated works by a collegue - plays 17 of the 48 preludes on this CD.

Quite a remarkable organ has been used for this recording: the one in the Blue Hall in the City Hall of Stockholm, largest in Northern Europe. So it is, even though neither organ pipes nor organ prospect can be seen in the Hall. This hall is well known around the world through the festivities taking place in it in connection with the awards of the Nobel Prices on December 10 every year. A beautiful, red-brick Hall - not at all blue, by the way, even if the City Hall architect Ragnar Östberg originally imagined its walls plastered in blue, something which never materialized. When Östberg saw the red-brown brick walls in real life, he decided to keep them such. Also, an organ of appro-priate size was installed in the Hall. It was a donation of the business man Oscar Hirsch - in order to render to the Stockholmers free access to good organ music.

The Stockholm City Hall Organ is here exposed to music from three centuries and six countries. The great organists Per-Ove Larsson, Per Thunarf, Mats Ericson, Anders Bondeman & Ralph Gustafsson give us splendid performances at the console of the Stockholm City Hall Organ.
