This new CD profiles acclaimed Finnish conductor Leif Segerstam as an equally inspired composer who has written nearly 250 symphonies to this date.
Featured are three one-movement symphonies that form a kind of “Bergen trilogy”: No. 81 “After Eighty…” (2002), No. 162 “Doubling the Number for Bergen…” (2006), and No. 181 “Names itself when played… = (raising the number with 100 for Bergen)” (2007).
Segerstam’s genius as a composer deploys itself through a unique notation technique: the score leaves a lot of freedom to the performers and yet requires no conductor for the orchestra. Hence, each performance turns into a unique listening experience.
These works are dedicated to and performed live on this disc by the reputed Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.
