"My pieces are abstract dramas in sound, with individual characters and an extremely dynamic chain of events; unfolding in a space that is constantly shifting, expanding and contracting." Thus Erkki-Sven Tüür, characterising his highly energetic recent works. The fifth New Series release dedicated exclusively to music by the Estonian composer presents world premiere recordings of two large-scale pieces for orchestral forces. "Strata" and "No?sis" are played by the Tallinn-based Nordic Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Estonian conductor Anu Tali. .Both orchestra and conductor make their New Series debuts here.

"Strata", Tüür's sixth symphony, which was commissioned and premiered by the Nordic Symphony, consists of one massive 32-minute movement which, in accordance with the geological metaphor of the title, explores the gradual movements and shifting relationship of different musical layers. In the liner notes, fellow composer and musicologist Kerri Kotta emphasizes that for Tüür, who in his earlier work has played with contrasting and contradictory methods and styles, "the symphony is not a post-modern re-enactment of well-known models. Although Tüür carefully avoids direct musical quotations, the traditional aspects of his works become manifest through distinctive rhythmic, melodic, dynamic and affective qualities. (...) These topics articulate the changing surface, where a key or a code gives rise to numerous voices which in their turn make up different textural layers." Tüür's compositions since 2002, indeed, follow a new path: "I have invented a method I call "vectorial writing", as the principle of voice-leading in the wider sense follows projections of vectors in different directions. At the same time, the basic material is given by a certain numerical code which acts like a gene in forming the whole composition with all possible mutations and transformations. This technique allows me to achieve much more harmonic variety."

"Noesis" was written in response to a commission from Neeme Järvi and premiered by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The solo parts of this concerto for clarinet, violin and orchestra are played on the present recording by Jörg and Carolin Widmann. While Carolin has won unanimous critical acclaim for her renderings of Robert Schumann's violin sonatas and for her 20th-century music recital "Phantasy of spring", Jörg Widmann counts among the pre-eminent young composers of our time, as well as one the finest contemporary clarinettists. A portrait-CD of his recent compositions will be issued by ECM in 2011.
