The link that relm1 has posted seems to be sheet music.

The link item that says "format: cd" is sheet music?  The contents of which exactly match my cd?  But what do I know.  And someone else posted to the Amazon link which is the same CD for the same price I paid for it.

An article on the performance of Symphony No. 4
http://www.ballade.no/sak/oslo-filharmonien-urfremforer-halvor-haugs-symfoni-nr-4/


There is no doubt that Haug's music has deep roots in the Nordic symphonic tradition. From these roots has grown a musical world full of strong emotion, drama and intellect; properties reflecting the composers personality, feelings, temperament, courage strength and originality. His masterly orchestration is much revered. Halvor Haug has the ability to take care of modernistic elements and composition techniques that have emerged in the postwar years and dynamically apply these in a more traditional sounding music. Haug's music can therefore really be seen as innovative, and difficult counted among the neo-romantic undercurrents currently going over the world. Nevertheless he on several occasions been described as being a romantic.

Halvor Haug was born in Trondheim in 1952 and grew up in west Bærum outside Oslo. Following studies in Oslo, Helsinki and London he soon became one of Norway's most significant composers. His symphonies and many smaller orchestral works have attracted significant attention in Norwegian and international music.

About his fourth symphony says Halvor Haug: - Symphony No.. 4 was completed before Christmas. It is written in a single rate for a typical large orchestra. The work is dedicated to all the innocent victims of terrorism and their families around the world. On me, as on most other people, did what happened last autumn a huge impression. The only way I can show a commitment to, or try to express emotion, to let it get expired in music. Of course I have not embarked me on to try and describe such earthshaking events. It was never in my thoughts. An artistic expression is for me my way to signal an attempt to communicate on an intellectual and emotional level. To use an expression needs to describe something as cruel as what happened on September 11, would be unthinkable for me. Then an expression means grotesque and incredibly naive. The symphony is naturally characterized by the impotence and sadness I felt, but after all, I hope that also an optimism has been expressed. Without it I would never have been able to write a new symphony.

Symphony No.. 4 is commissioned by the Oslo Philharmonic, with funding from the Norwegian Society of Composers. Administration performed in Oslo Concert at 19.30, Thursday 14th and Friday 15th February 2002. On the program are Mozart's "Requiem".

I have a Mac there's a little program you can download called Switch which enables you to convert various sound file formats to each other. It takes a couple of minutes to convert an m4a to mp3.

Switch is trialware, ie after a certain number of uses it locks and you have to pay for it (can't remember how much it was). However, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a similar free product, for Mac or PC.

agreed..there are many free conversion programs for The PC and MAC
C-net should be of help.

I remember a very impressive piece by John Persen on that Unicorn double LP of Norwegian music that Per Dreir made in the 70s; I shall be very interested to hear another piece by him, so thanks magmasystems for the upload. And of course I concur that any more Solderlind is always welcome, if you have any?

As a huge admirer of the music of Ragnar Soderlind can I express my heartfelt gratitude to magmasystems for the upload of the Requiem.

This massive work dates from 2009 and its full title is “A Nordic Requiem: a Mass for the Living and the Dead” for seven soloists, chorus and orchestra, op.104.

Given the size and scope of the work-it lasts for well over 2 hours and the tragic neglect of Soderlind this is, almost certainly, our only opportunity to hear it.

Profound thanks Smiley

I have always been a huge fan of Soderlind ever since the piece about the desert (name escapes me) for Oboe and orchestra.  I am so thrilled to have this, Colin!  Malcolm

It's a pleasure to provide this to the members of the forum. Enjoy. I often feel that this forum is the only gather spot for fans of Ragnar :-)

Now we have to do a bit of the same for Halvor Haug !

Dundonnell:

I wish I could upload things but I am all thumbs when it comes to computers....Soderlind's "Two Pieces from the Desert" for oboe and orchestra might be his most exciting works.  Hopefully someone on this site will have it and know how to upload it.  If not, I can always send you a copy in the mail.  Malito (Malcolm)
