For their current CD production, the young members of the LGT Young Soloists were inspired by the sounds of Scandinavia. The album features famous works such as Sibelius’ Valse triste and Svendsen’s Romance next to wonderful treasures by little-known Scandinavian composers. There is also a world premiere by Jan Alm (b. 1955), a double bass player and composer who wrote his work Two Poems for double bass solo and string orchestra for the LGT Young Soloists and this specific album.
The recording sessions took place at the Jesus Christus Kirche in Berlin, where luminaries such as Herbert von Karajan, Claudio Abbado, Daniel Barenboim, Anne-Sophie Mutter and Luciano Pavarotti made recordings.
