Item Number: NX.ACD5089

The first encounter with a piece of new music is always exciting. To put the sound into words - the impression you have there and then - is not easy. Seldom does one see the whole intention; often one hovers on the surface of an opinion. The encounter seems indirect. You have this short time to experience what others have taken weeks, months and perhaps years to say. There is a deep understanding between composer Magne Hegdal and pianist Ellen Ugelvik. Here is a long-standing and throroughly prepared study, a knowledge of the intention and the attitude that lies behind it - and not least a practical knowledge. With his origin in a theoretical framework, composer Anton Reicha (1770-1836) works strangely and radically. Hegdal (1944) is inspired by Reicha, both by his look at sonata form and further as a theoretician and composer. Reicha's radicalism and accessibility is what Hegdal embraces, and so Reicha is heard with him on the whole of this record.
