First Day of Winter

In Norway, 14 October was traditionally seen as the first day of winter. To mark the occasion, here's an unreleased, but truly transcendent live record by one of Norway's foremost composers—a man seemingly steeped in winter, by the sounds of these monumental, monochromatic and meditative orchestral pieces.

You may curse it in a couple of months, but winter has its own beauty.

    Nothing more to say!
    ...maybe except that this is a fantastic recording of an exceptional bunch of forwards- (and backwards) thinking musicians who got the opportunity to tour with this material.
    PS. Another lost recording has surfaced...
