On this album percussionist extraordinaire Eirik Raude performs renditions of Per Nørgård’s I ching for Percussion Solo, Magnus Lindberg’s Metal Work and Mark Adderley’s Mechanics I. Raude’s powerful playing and lively presence makes the complex material more accessible and immediate for listeners that are not necessarily contemporary music connoisseurs. Renowned accordionist Frode Haltli contributes with tasteful details on Metal Work – hearing the two highly skilled players perform together is pure joy. ‘I Ching’ is rich in contrast and offers the listener a multi-faceted selection of contemporary percussion works played by one of Norway’s top performers – this album is destined to last. sd
