Pehr Henrik Nordgren (1944-2008) is considered by many composer colleagues, musicians and music experts as one of the leading and most interesting composers of his generation. Works on this recording (Horn Concerto, Violin Concerto Nr 4 and Rock Score) have all been recorded before, but are now updated to super audio sound with new soloists on ALBA records. The three works were composed between 1994 and 1997. In the beginning, Nordgren wrote most of his solo concertos in several separate movements. Later on, he preferred the one-movement form. The whole league of performers including the orchestra itself are Ostrobothnians, where the composer settled to work too.
