Performed by Acros Chamber Orchestra, conducted by John-Edward Kelly. Stereo/5.1 multichannel hybrid CD/SACD release that can be played on any CD player. "'Music was the only way I could survive in this world.'Even as a young boy, Anders Eliasson used to arrange his toy soldiers into an orchestra, sit in front of them and sing, imitating the sounds of the instruments. The earliest music he can remember is 'my own singing.' At the age of nine he was given a trumpet, received some lessons from experienced jazzmen, and soon became the leader of his own combo (two clarinets, trombone, drums, guitar and trumpet). Listening to the three works on this CD, it becomes obvious that Eliasson's style has changed over the years. It is a long way from the vehemence and timbral extremes of 'Desert Point' to 'Ostácoli,' which has become a sort of classic for string orchestras, or the broadly reverberant introspection of 'Sinfonia Per Archi,' circumscribing a huge, delicately gossamer arc of tension. Yet no one can foresee what will come next, for each piece is a self-sufficient entity that poses its own demands."
