      Description hide

      Aurora Records is pleased to present the upcoming double album Between Trees with selected works by Kristine Tj ø gersen, one of the NorwayNorway’s most promising and sought after composers. The release will be available as double vinyl CD and on streaming servic es xxxx in 2024, and is Tj ø gersen's first album on Aurora Records. With a growing demand and international attention for this composer, the time is right to release her first portrait album.

      The forthcoming album is a comprehensive collection of award win ning works and some of Europe's leading performers. The album opens with the title piece Between Trees performed by the Norwegian Radio Orchestra, a piece that had its world premiere in October 2021 and that won the International Rostrum of Composers in Pa lermo in 2022. Tj ø gersen calls the piece "chamber music for orchestra" and takes listeners on a musical excursion into the forest. The album also features the leading German contemporary music ensemble Recherche. They perform Seafloor Dawn Chorus ( a sonic underwater environment inspired by field recordings of singing fish on the Great Barrier Reef. Other tracks include ensembles where the composer herself is a member with T ø yen Fil and Klafferi and Ensemble neoN, collaborations with Jenny Hval and and Marcus Weiss, and solo pieces with the renowned violinist Marco Fusi.

      Nature in motion and process is often reflected in her works, and collaboration with researchers and biologists is for her a source of new sound and scenic ideas that allows her to incorporat e organic forms into the music. As Tjøgersen puts it, “I like to magnify my ears enormously like a microscope looking for hidden sounds. With this record I hope to create a unique space for listening and consideration; a miniature world, where you can marvel at the proportions of nature. By giving nature a voice in the concert hall, I want the audience to get to know valuable forms of life, and to raise awareness of what can be lost if humans continue to change nature.”
      Kristine Tj øgersen

      "Kristine Tj ø gersen is this year's winner of the Arne Nordheim music prize, and the last concert at the Ultima Festival was dedicated to her playful musical universe. There is a directness o f its own in Tj ø gersen's music. The music is characterized by playful precision and a remarkable clarity, preferably with nature and its sounds as a starting point... A remarkable wonder of nature" Aksel Dalmo Toll å li Aftenposten (2020)
