Viriditas per Omnibus
This all Swedish recording by the Omnibus Wind Ensemble includes premiere performances of two specially written compositions, one by jazz musician Eje Thelin and the other by Karl-Erik Welin. Also included are works by Tor Aulin, Joseph Martin Kraus, Johan Joachim Agrell, Wilhelm Peterson-Berger and Hugo Alfén. A veritable Odyssey of Swedish Music!
"The listener is treated
to a succesion and variety of musical jewels, all of inestimable brilliance
and freshness. The twelve players, oustandingly close-knit and virtuosos
of their instruments, perform and delight with an infectious delight and
with splendid precision. In short: an outstandingly interesting, variable
and technically perfect CD for which there is a place in every serious
listener's record library!"
