Prillar is a miraculous find. Geirr Tveitt wrote it as a graduation piece from the Leipzig Conservatory. When he couldn't get it performed, he destroyed it and for the rest of life regaled his family with stories about how great it was.
But it wasn't lost, just torn to shreds. Tveitt's son found it in a barn a decade after his father's death. It was pasted back together by musicologists, published and peformed.
Tveitt was right--it's a marvel. The opening is one of the most joyous in all music, building up to a theme that took my wife and I six months to get out of our heads. Three or four other great tunes follow, enhanced by orchestration and development that shows Tveitt was already a master.
Don't miss this CD! I was so impressed with it I booked passage to Norway to visit the barn where it was found. The astounding scenery of the Hardanger Fjord permeates all of Tveitt's music, especially in Prillar. If you have a heart for the big outdoors, you need to scrape together the cash for this treat.
