About the album

CIKADA PLAYS CRANE
Cikada Ensemble’s first release on LAWO Classics, Drones, Scales and Objects, consists of contemporary chamber music by acclaimed British composer Laurence Crane. The Norwegian ensemble started performing Crane’s music in 2011, and the result of their successful collaboration is presented on this CD.

I use simple and basic musical objects; common chords and intervals, arpeggios, drones, cadences, fragments of scales and melodies. The materials may seem familiar – perhaps even rather ordinary – but my aim is to find a fresh beauty in these objects by placing them in new structural and formal contexts and by using a surface texture that is highly reduced.
Laurence Crane
Cikada spielt Crane

Dies ist die erste Einspielung des Cikada Ensembles für LAWO Classics. Drones, Scales and Objects enthält zeitgenössische Werke des bekannten britischen Komponisten Laurence Crane. Das norwegische Ensemble und Crane verbindet seit 2011 eine musikalische Beziehung, die sich nun in dieser CD manifestiert.

Cikada Ensemble

Since its formation in Oslo in 1989, the Cikada Ensemble has developed a refined and highly acclaimed profile on the international contemporary music scene. From the very beginning, Cikada has consisted of flute, clarinet, piano, percussion, string quintet and conductor Christian Eggen. All ten are equal, permanent members, and the ensemble has become synonymous with the Oslo Sound of fresh, vibrant, warm and virtuosic interpretations of consciously selected, contemporary repertoire. In concerts at major international festivals and on numerous albums, Cikada’s distinct ensemble profile manifests itself in strong programming. Integral to this work is a wish to develop long-term collaborations with composers and to build composer portraits with commissioned works over time. The nine musicians also form various formations within the group:...

The nine musicians also form various formations within the group: Cikada String Quartet and Cikada Trio (flute, clarinet, piano) work as independent Cikada units, adding to the ensemble’s international identity.
Cikada was awarded the prestigious Nordic Music Prize in 2005.
