The second joint album of the Central Ostrobothnia Chamber Orchestra (KPKO) and its artistic director, Malin Broman, has now been released. 'Recharged by nature' contains music from some of today's most interesting composer names on the Sweden-Finland axis. For all works, it is a first recording.
The album opens with the Swedish choreographer Andrea Tarrodi (b. 1981). The piece Acanthes, composed for two violins and strings, was composed for Pekka Kuusisto, Malin Broman and the Musica Vitae orchestra in 2017. The piece was inspired by the artist Henri Matisse's "Papiers dé-coupés" collage series. A work depicting stylized acanthus plants served as a special example. "I have tried to translate the different shapes and colors of this painting into music," sums up Tarrodi.
Prolific Swedish composer Mats Larsson Gothe (b. 1965) composed his string orchestra piece Lied von der Erde for the 40th anniversary of the Central Ostrobothnia Chamber Orchestra in 2012. According to the composer, the title of the piece refers to "the rise of music from the earth, as if from some folk music-like soil".
Britta Byström's (b.1977) Im Freie for violin and strings (2020) is the third piece on the album. The twenty-minute concerto written for Malin Broman was created in the first months of the corona pandemic, when the composer, like many others, sat in the so-called in "lockdown" indoors, at home. The piece is also inspired by traditional West African music that often takes place outdoors. "The piece is like a kind of musical outdoor excursion," Byström characterizes.
The record is sealed by Finnish composer Sauli Zinovjev's (b.1988) bright and rhythmic Re-charged (2015/18). The composer's rock background can be clearly heard in this straightforward work, described as an "initial explosion" in Helsingin Sanomat's review.
