Avanti! Chamber Orchestra
Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra
Jukka-Pekka Saraste, conductor
This CD includes three orchestral works by Magnus Lindberg which the composer himself described as a "trilogy": Kinetics (1988-89), Marea ("Tide"; 1989-90) and Joy (1990). They are considered key scores in Lindberg's stylistic evolution during the late 1980s towards a new modernist classicism.
Jukka-Pekka Saraste conducts the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in Kinetics and the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra in the two other works.
"The rendition (...) under the direction of Jukka-Pekka Saraste seems to entirely match with the composer's vision." --Patrick Szersnovicz, Le Monde de la Musique, December 1992, ****
"(These) important three compositions reveal a personality growing into maturity and of a value very different from any short-term fashion." --Pierre Gervasoni, Diapason, December 1992, ****
