Northern Timbre – Ragnhild Hemsing & Tor Espens Aspaas released in 2012 by 2L Audiophile Reference Recordings. The album was recorded at Sofienberg Church in Oslo, Norway.
Edvard Grieg (1843–1907), Carl Nielsen (1865–1931) and Jean Sibelius (1865–1957) are generally recognized as the Nordic countries’ most important composers. Nielsen and Sibelius were both inspired and influenced in their early years by Grieg’s music. Their idiom was strongly Romantic, but they managed to create a distinct “Nordic Sound” in which national elements combined with the broader European tradition. This album not only shows this, but also probes the way they were inspired by one another. Moreover, the works on this album are among our personal favourites, with a Northern Timbre we feel resonates, no matter where you are.
Immersive Audio is a sonic sculpture that you can literally move around and relate to spatially; surrounded by music you can move about in the aural space and choose angles, vantage points and positions. Dolby Atmos and the Auro-3D on this Pure Audio Blu-ray delivers a new standard in immersion, fully enveloping the audience in a cocoon of life-like audio. Recorded in discrete 9.1 at DXD resolution.
