Arne Nordheim

Some of you may be familiar with the Norwegian composer Arne Nordheim through records on Rune Grammofon, but let me suggest a new one for you (that have got good reviews from people with a better language for this kind of music than I have). Kenneth Karlson (synth) and Bjørn Rabben (percussion) is Cikada Duo, and have recorded the CD "Nordheim" (2L 2007) with Elisabeth Holmertz (soprano) and Åke Parmerud (elektronics). The vocal parts are sung in ancient Greek and Norwegian, and should give you some food for thought!
