Symphonies of Wind Instruments

"A composer speaking about his own problems is also speaking about the problems of mankind," asserted Schoenberg. "I was made a revolutionary in spite of myself," said Stravinsky. Hindemith spoke of a forthcoming "big battle over new music", and added, "the need will be to prove whether or not the music of our day, including my own, is capable of survival." Today these composers are regarded as being three of the most seminal figures in music history in the first half of the 20th century. Meanwhile a composer at the end of the same century, Rolf Wallin, has written music that portrays "the dancing dynamics of the universe", where nothing is stable and everything is volatile. The works featured on this album by these four composers reflect the universal and timeless balance between tradition and innovation, and the Royal Norwegian Navy Band under Ingar Bergby illuminate this balance in their recordings of these works, and breathe new life into this music.

«En komponist, når han taler om sine egne problemer, behandler samtidig menneskehetens problemer,» mente Schönberg. «Jeg er blitt gjort til revolusjonær mot min vilje», sa Stravinskij.«Det gjenstår å se hvorvidt vår tids musikk har livets rett,» skrev Hindemith. I dag regnes disse tre blant de mest betydningsfulle stilskaperne fra denne dramatiske perioden i europeisk historie. I motsatt ende av samme århundre skildrer Wallin «universets dansende dynamikk», hvor alt er foranderlig. Balansen mellom tradisjon og nyskaping er det universelle og tidløse møtepunktet til disse verkene, og Kongelige Norske Marines Musikkorps under ledelse av Ingar Bergby holder tradisjonen i hevd gjennom disse nye innspillingene som reaktualiserer musikken og holder den levende.
