Christian Lidberg and Jan Sandstrom here continue their long-running collaboration with four works reflecting Sandstrom's trajectory as a composer for orchestra. The works here illustrate the different compositional strands that exist in his music with his early music drawing inspiration from Eastern philosophy, minimalism, serialism, and spectral music. With the 1987 ballet En herrgardssagen (A Manor Saga) performed here as a suite for orchestra, We see a different approach to his writing stimulated by the idea of music as narrative with the desire to 'incorporate the whole world' in his music.. Another such piece is Ocean Child inspired by a snorkelling trip the composer made with his daughter to Thailand, which the composer describes as a"tribute to life, to curiosity and childish naivety". Lindberg here conducts the Iceland Symphony Orchestra.
