TRACHEA

Trachea, the windpipe. A source of transformation where the breath of a human being can be refined into the most beautiful, powerful, tender art. The voice is humankind’s primeval instrument, plumbing the greatest depths of our emotional register. Schola Cantorum takes us through six unique musical landscapes that share something fundamental: This is music that celebrates the physical and spiritual, thinking and feeling human being — and at the same time poses a challenge. Who are we?

Bjørn Kåre Odde: Snilla Patea
Martin Ødegaard: Trachea
Ståle Kleiberg: Alt i universet
Bjørn Morten Christophersen: Oak and Mayfly
Karin Rehnqvist: When I close my eyes, I dream of peace
Frøy Aagre: Gloria

"I love the choir — this instrument which is so unpredictable, so personal. Each member sings with his or her own voice, communicating their own personal story, and my objective is to collect it all, unify and purify it, and hopefully make the Eros, the profound and inherent love, shine brightly by way of the instrument. Whether the music is complex or simple, the objective remains equal: to cultivate an energy and a timbre which merge with the composition, elevating it to something larger than the sum of all its individual elements. It is during this encounter, where each individual forms part of something larger than themselves, that musical magic arises. This is what I seek. Those moments when the eyes of both the performers and our audience glow. This is the moment I know that we have succeeded." — Tone Bianca Sparre Dahl, conductor

Ever since Schola Cantorum was founded by composer Knut Nystedt in 1964, the chamber choir of the Department of Musicology at the University of Oslo has had as its prime goal to present contemporary choral works with a particular emphasis on Norwegian and Nordic composers.

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 7.0.4 at DXD resolution.


Trachea, luftrøret. En kilde til en forvandling der selve pusten til et menneske kan foredles til den vakreste, råeste, skjøreste kunst. Sangen er menneskets urinstrument og lodder de store dybdene i vårt følelsesregister. Schola Cantorum tar oss gjennom seks unike musikalske landskap som deler et felles fundament: Dette er musikk som feirer det fysiske, åndelige, tenkende og følende mennesket — og samtidig utfordrer. Hvem er vi?

«Jeg elsker kor. Dette instrumentet som er så uforutsigbart, så personlig. Hver enkelt synger med sin egen stemme og kommer med sin egen personlige historie, og min oppgave er å samle alt dette, foredle det og forhåpentligvis få musikkens eros, den dype iboende kjærligheten, til å skinne gjennom instrumentet. Enten musikken er kompleks eller enkel er målet det samme; å dyrke fram en energi og en klang som smelter sammen med komposisjonen og løfter det så helheten blir større enn summen av alle delene. Det er i det møtet, der alle er med på noe som er større enn dem selv, at det magiske musikalske øyeblikket oppstår. Det jakter jeg på. De gangene øynene skinner hos både utøvere og lyttere, da vet jeg at det har lyktes.» — Tone Bianca Sparre Dahl, dirigent

Schola Cantorum ved Universitetet i Oslo ble grunnlagt av kor-legenden Knut Nystedt i 1964. Dette internasjonalt anerkjente ensemblet ledes i dag av Tone Bianca Sparre Dahl med samme mål i dag som den gang: Å presentere det ypperste av ny kormusikk, med et spesielt fokus på norsk og nordiske komponister.
