Hymne ā l’univers

The Stockholm City Hall is known around the world for housing the Nobel prize banquet.
It is also home to the largest organ in Scandinavia.
On this spectacular instrument, with its 10 000 pipes, Mattias Wager plays French music from the Thirties. The music, by Alain, Jolivet, Bonnal and Duruflé shows the scope and sheer creativity of its time, and its feeling of boundless musical possibilities. With its wealth of sound, the City Hall organ is one of the few instruments that make it possible to really bring out all the colors in this repertoire.
I think we have been able to catch the sounds of the organ and the feeling of this very spacious hall!

Across the Bridge of Hope

A choir could be said to be the ultimate example of different people working together in harmony to create a thing of beauty.
The advent of the millennium and its theme-song of Hope which was sung around the world has been the inspiration behind the idea of  this choral record with a difference.

Organ Treasures

Organ Treasures is like a small concert also for those who prefers melodic, soft and cosy organ music, but who never earlier "dared" to buy an organ recording, while so much organ music can be both difficult and complex. (For more info, please click on Mattias Wager)

Anders Åstrand - Marimba, Vibraphone and Percussion

If you are wondering what prompted an organist and a percussion/marimba/vibraphone player to journey to Iceland to make a recording with improvised music and a special arrangement of Maurice Ravel's Bolero, then perhaps the word inspiration could be the most succinct answer.
