Niels Marthinsen: Snapshot Symphony

19 April 2012  American Record Guide
Barry Kilpatrick

The big piece here is the three-movement…“a fantasy trip to exotic regions as Niels Marthinsen knows them from film, TV, and the Internet”. The movement titles tell the tale. I (‘Fiesta Mexicana’) is colorful and energetic, II (‘Arabian Nights’) is sinuous and a bit disquieting, and III (‘Great Fireworks in China’) has a fast-slow-fast structure. The music is skillfully crafted…and requires no effort to enjoy.
