Performance:   Sonics:    
Woodwinds have the place of honor in this SACD and Blu-ray Pure Audio, which is remarkable both on the musical and sound level. Four composers are here represented. Paul Hindemith (1895-1963) with “Konzertmusic” from 1926 and his symphony dating from 1951; Arnold Schoenberg (1874-1951) with “Theme and Variations” Op.43a dating from 1943, Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) and his famous symphony for woodwinds dating from 1921, revised in 1947; as well as Rolf Wallin, born in 1957, and his composition “Changes” dating from 1984. Thanks notably to the commitment of the Royal Norwegian Navy Band that Ingar Bergby directs masterfully, and a sound recording which is once again exemplary and of rare tonal purity, all of these works offer coherence to a program which is most certainly demanding, but which lacks neither beauty nor emotion. In short, this is a great moment that shouldn’t be missed.
