Album highlight : Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra / Lars Petter Hagen
The Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra's new release presents the beautiful and wondrous music of Lars Petter Hagen. After premiering 'The Artist's Despair Before the Grandeur of Ancient Ruins' in 2010, the OPO was so intrigued by Hagen's project that they readily agreed to recording his complete orchestral music. Together with conductor Rolf Gupta the orchestra gives a voice to a different composer all together, with references to both the classical tradition, concept art, pop and folk music.
