VJQC Score: N/A
Artist: JOHANNSSON,JOHANN
Album Name: VIROULEGU FORSETAR
Record Label: DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON
Genre: CHAMBER MUSIC & RECITALS
Format: VINYL LP
Release Date: 10/4/2019

Double vinyl LP pressing. Vir?ulegu Forsetar presents an hour-long piece for 11 brass players, percussion, electronics, organs and piano. It was composed with a specific site in mind, the Hallgr?mskirkja (Hallgrimur's church) in Reykjavik (Iceland), and was recorded there. The piece has Englab?rn's quiet, elegiac beauty, but abandons the brevity of the first album's exquisite miniatures in favour of an extended form that reveals a long, slow process.
