This CD is a kind of a survey of Scandinavian music of the 20th century, composed specifically for wind instruments. An interesting observation comes to mind while one is listening to this recording: although the last century in the history of Western classical music had passed under the banner of an unprecedented pluralism in the field of aesthetics and compositional techniques, and the works presented in the recording were created within the space of eighty years, one cannot help but get the impression of the existence of a certain idiom, a common feature typical for composers of this part of Europe.
