This third and final disc of the survey of the complete orchestral music by Norwegian composer Fartein Valen includes three shorter one-movement works from the 1930s, as well as his last two orchestral compositions, his Fourth Symphony and the Piano Concerto.

Christian Eggen and Stavanger Symphony Orchestra continues with Valen’s last symphony, somewhat of a greeting to Johannes Brahms: like Brahms Valen ends his Fourth Symphony with a chaconne.
