Lindberg: Chamber Works

Lindberg: Chamber Works by Magnus Lindberg
Released: Aug 2012
Label: Ondine
Lindberg wrote his finest piece of chamber music yet -- the gorgeous but steely "Trio for clarinet, cello and piano" -- in 2008, before taking a gig with the New York Philharmonic. In between seasons, he recorded that piece with some similar items, and played all the piano parts himself. His tone has a rough-hewn grandness that suits the two opposing influences in his writing: the spectral harshness of his youth and a more recent romantic turn. "Santa Fe Project" -- for his piano and Anssi Karttunen's cello -- is another stunner. A surprise disc from the orchestral writer, but a welcome one.
