This piece is inspired by the majestic landscape in Northern Norway, specifically its two natural phenomena: the midnight sun and the midday moon, which in turn are the two recurring themes. The midnight sun, grandiose and bright, contrasts the midday moon, which is melancholy and fragile. From the dense forests, to the deep fjords, towering mountains, rugged coastline, and the rolling landscapes, this concerto is a tribute to the breathtaking nature of this magical kingdom.
