Alex Zethson - Terje [Supertraditional Records]

Released via Supertraditional Records on April 7th, 2k23 is "Terje", the latest mini-album x EP cooked up by Swedish composer x improviser Alex Zethson who's catering a total of two tracks on this one, covering a playtime of 19 minutes. With both compositions being part of a more extended score composed for Victor Sjöström's 1917 silent film "Terje Vigen", a cinematic piece unknown to us, we see the opening cut "Öja" embark on an absolutely majestic journey, pairing the gravitas of Modern Classical pulse generation with ethereal, non-vocalist choir glissandos whereas the subsequent "Grimstad" presents a more dramatic, yet also slightly more Folk x Nordic Folk-leaning approach to Modern Contemporary Classical composition. Timeless excellence.
