For fans of Magnus Lindberg, this French release is very much worth checking out. It contains four pieces performed by the Ensemble Intercontemporain conducted by Peter Eotvos. Even if other recordings exist in performance by Finnish musicians close to the composer, this one is unique for its superb sound quality. Recorded in IRCAM's projection space, this disc presents Lindberg's orchestral writing clear as crystal, with the spatial separation of the instruments readily audible.

"UR" for five instruments and electronics (1986) was the last piece in Lindberg's early period, written just before an extensive hiatus. Scored for an ensemble of clarinet/bass clarinet, piano/synthesizer, violin, cello, double bass, it compresses into chamber form Lindberg's first great work KRAFT premiered the previous year. Rhythm was Lindberg's chief concern in these days, giving bluntness something like Elliott Carter, and harmonically we find total chromaticism. It's a work that, from descriptions, should sound ugly, but it's not like that at all. The clarinet part, especially in the hands of the Ensemble Intercontemporain's Alain Damiens, keeps things whimsical, the electronics provides a lovely shimmery backdrop, and the virtuoso writing highlighted by solos lets the listener marvel at the performers' talent.

After a hiatus of over two years, Lindberg returned with the trilogy "Kinetics"-"Marea"-"Joy", where his new compositional technique focuses on harmony, namely chaconne technique. This is the style that has sustained him to the present moment, and in it he has created some true masterpieces of modern-classical music, such as "Feria", "Cantigas", and the "Concerto for Orchestra".
