4.0 out of 5 stars Good performances of somewhat minor Lindberg July 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Magnus Lindberg's writing for larger ensembles is extensive, and he has often quipped that his "favourite instrument is the orchestra". Here the Sakari Oramo leads the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra in four pieces for chamber orchestra.

The style of Lindberg's youth--up to "KRAFT" in 1985, was focused mainly on rhythm. "Tendenza" (1982) is a good example of this, very energetic, violent even, its soundworld is something like Elliott Carter's with stranger textures. This is good listening, but in spite of the ingenuity of some of its ideas, the total result is somewhat immature. KRAFT showed great progress, and the best was yet to come, for after that massive piece, Lindberg entered a hiatus of two years while recovering from a tropical disease and rethinking his style, ultimately reappearing with a focus on extremely rich harmonies.

"Corrente" (1992) was one of the first pieces Lindberg wrote after his comeback trilogy "Kinetics"-"Marea"-"Joy" and the first version of his piano concerto, but breaks new ground in introducing a form that was to be widely used in the Clarinet Quintet, "Related Rocks", and the Concerto for Orchestra. A smooth, even orchestral sea (the title does mean "flowing") dominates in the first portion, while towards the end there's a dance-like ostinato. It also inaugurates an occasional use of quotation; here we hear a bit of Purcell's "Funeral Music for Queen Mary" buried in the waves. Later that year, Lindberg reworked the piece as "Corrente II" for large orchestra, but I think the original version for chamber orchestra works better.

Lindberg had received a commision from the Swedish Rikskonserter for a vocal work, but responded with the purely instrumental "Coyote Blues" (1993).
