Sunleif Rasmussen (b. 1961) is the foremost Faroese composer of classical music. He studied with well known composers such as Ib N?©rholm and Ivar Frounberg, and his international breakthrough helped to place his native islands on the world map of music. With this premiere recording of Sunleif Rasmussen's works for strings it is clear that the point of departure for Rasmussen's music may be Faroese - or at any rate ultra-Nordic - but its stature is global.

Rasmussen's works always have a natural complexity, combining his jazz background with a rich tradition of Faroese folk music and electro-acoustic and spectral music. The result is highly evocative and beautiful to listen to, as demonstrated by the five works for strings on this CD.

\...the performances are stunning...the orchestral textures have ideal clarity and a totally natural perspective. Rasmussen clearly is a talent to watch"
