Everyone needs to hear Epitaffio, Nordheim's masterpiece.

I’ve heard it and my main reaction was ‘meh’.

What's Nordheim's musical style like?

Well, thanks for trying.

Have you heard... Canzona?

I have not, but I’ll have to give it a try at some point this weekend.

dreary? lol

forgive me if I get the vast swathe of sub-BIS Composers confused- Nordheim vs Norholm being the biggest...

Well, thanks for trying.

Doesn't he have like 11 Symphonies? recommending a Canzona doesn't seem to bode well


Scandanavian (?) Composers just crawl out of the woodwork... if you let them!!!




and I like my dreary Scan landscapes as much as anyone, even anony

It is Nørholm who has symphonies, 13 of them.

I find Nordheim's style quite accessible now.
