Danish composer Erik Norby (1936–2007) writes in an impressive neo-late romantic style with a good sense of expanded tonality, lush harmony, and interesting ideas. This program contains three impressive pieces, all with important subtexts and striking ingenuity.
The Rainbow Snake (1975)…is strikingly sumptuous, even erotic, and makes for an unexpected revelation worthy of notice.
Rilke-Lieder (1985)…retains shades of submerged tonality and is an effective piece of steamy excess. Ms Fischer is rich-voiced and appropriately expressive.
Performances are excellent. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
