With this premiere recording of Sunleif Rasmussen’s works for strings it is clear that the point of departure for Rasmussen’s music may be Faroese - or at any rate ultra-Nordic - but its stature is global. Rasmussen’s works always have a natural complexity, combining his jazz background with a rich tradition of Faroese folk music and electro-acoustic and spectral music. The result is highly evocative and beautiful to listen to, as demonstrated by the five works for strings on this CD.
