This disc presents work by one of Norway’s foremost composers of contemporary music, Lars Petter Hagen. The music, composed over a period of 20 years, is performed by the award- winning contemporary music group Cikada. The CD’s name comes from the group of six pieces titled Harmonium Repertoire, which is placed at the heart of the programme. These contain references to fragments from the early 20th-century orchestral repertoire in which a harmonium is used within the ensemble. The recording quality is excellent, and it benefits from being heard on very sensitive equipment. The delicate soundworld and fleeting thoughts deliberately evoke a sense of melancholic reflection on past time. This is for open- minded devotees of contemporary music.
