Nordic Variations

Since the start of the amazing project “Nordic Journey” created by Dr. James D Hicks, New Jersey, USA – I have been involved on almost all of the CD’s produced so far: 10 Volumes where several are double CD’s. Mr. Hicks has both commissioned, premiered and recorded many works to contribute to a better understanding and knowledge of the music from the Nordic Lands. It’s an incredible idea that Hicks now has pursued over more than 10 years since the start back in 2008. And more is to come. As a side project he is now in collaboration with Norwegian publishers releasing some of these commissions in an anthology called “Nordic Journey Series” and the other week the second volume was out where I am represented with a short piece called Nordic Variations. The work is based on an Icelandic folk tune called: “Sof∂u unga stinn mín”. It was composed in 2018 as a tribute to mr Hick’s 60th anniversary. This anthology can be purchase at Norsk Musikforlag!
