The Norrbotten Chamber Orchestra was founded to perform music by the best of classical composers as well as brand new works by contemporary composers. This album presents a selection of works that the Norrbotten Chamber Orchestra has commissioned over the years. All of the composers represented have connections with Norrbotten, the vibrant, northerly province of Sweden with its magic nordic light. Included are e.g. Jan Sandström’s contemplative arrangement of Praetorius’ "Es ist ein Ros entsprungen", Jan Ferm’s suite "Norrbotten Rhapsody" (composed for Norrbotten Chamber Orchestra and the folk music group JP Nyströms) and Bo Nilssons exciting work "Wiesenblümchen".
