Lasse Thoresen: Himmelkvad. Berit Opheim Versto, Nordic Voices.

Lasse Thoresen not only uses folk sounds to spice up art music, he also integrates its finely tuned microtonality, spectral overtones, harmonies and rhythms into the contemporary, modernist project in a truly pioneering manner. A project like this depends upon close collaboration with skilled musicians who are willing to take risks. Thoresen found them in the vocal ensemble Nordic Voices and folk singer Berit Opheim Versto. Artistic creativity, versatility and technical precision are the main elements that make up NORDIC VOICES

Vocal Sextet Op. 42. Helligkvadene (Sacred Songs). Hard on the heels of Simax’s issue of his solo violin piece Yr (5/12) comes a whole disc devoted to unaccompanied vocal music by Lasse Thoresen (b1949). Two cycles are presented here, the six sacred songs Helligkvad – composed between 1988 and 1996 – for solo voice and the four motets based on Norwegian folk melodies composed for the six members of Nordic Voices in 2008-09 and which won the 2010 Nordic Council Music Prize.

Lasse Thoresen (born 1949) is a norwegian composer, who is often associated with contemporary music. He is educated by the Music conservatory in Oslo (later Norwegian Academy of Music) under Finn Mortensen (1972), and by Werner Kaegi (Utrecht, 1973). Artistic creativity, versatility and technical precision are the main elements that make up NORDIC VOICES.
