For solo piano. Recorded by the composer and released on Decca Classics in 2021.
In the hushed stillness of a dark Norwegian winter, "Winter Moon" emerges as a reflective piano piece, inviting listeners into tranquility and peace.
In a year where nothing turned out as it was supposed to, many of us found ourselves being at home. I had to postpone many projects with choirs and orchestras this year, with festivals from Canada to South Africa. So when all the voices of choirs had stilled, all that was left was my piano. This music was written at home, inspired by what I saw through my window. The piano has always been my instrument, but this was the first time everything was stripped down to the intimate setting of a composer and his piano. And in a way, that was like coming home.
