Цитата( буклет )
”For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by ...” Psalm 90, verse 4

The beginning of the universe and the drama at Golgatha; medieval music and German baroque; the writings of Sшren Kierkegaard – and a child’s baptism in Oslo in 1987. Knut Nystedt draws his inspiration from all ages, creating his monumental choral art with a Christian perspective and wide, humanistic appeal.

Knut Nystedt — a ”land of adventure”
He has a thorough knowledge of the choral medium! It might sound like a weak clichй, passed off as an advertisement for a recording of choral music. Note however, the following facts: when the legendary Olavsguttene boys’ choir gave their first concert in 1927, twelve year old Knut was among the trebles; the date of composition of the most recent work on this recording is 2003. We are in other words dealing with seventy-six years of choral experience. One would be hard put to find – in all the choral repertoire in the world – any other works based on longer experience, or a longer apprenticeship. Apprenticeship – an important concept in Nystedt’s work; it is perhaps a little disrespectful to call Nystedt an ”eternal student” – yet he has an unquencheable curiosity, ever keen to conquer new musical territory. Starting out with a style of nationally tinged neo-classicism – and always with Palestrina and Bach as his guiding lights – he has, without prejudice, adopted the avant-garde techniques of twentieth century music.

On two occasions Nystedt was asked to answer a questionnaire for an entry in the Norwegian music reference book Musikkens Verden (The World of Music) – first in 1951, and then in 1963. One of the questions asked which composers had had a particular influence on his musical development. At our request Nystedt answered the same questions again in the summer of 2005. Would the answers turn out the same for all three occasions?
In 1951 he mentioned Palestrina and Bach, and among twentieth century composers, Bartok, Stravinsky and Copland. In 1963 the list also began with Palestrina and Bach; Stravinsky is named in addition to another, interesting modern composer, namely Messiaen. In 2005 Nystedt still holds by Palestrina and Bach; additionally he names Bartok (as in 1951), Honegger and, for the first time, a late romantic composer, Mahler. Then follow three names which show Nystedt’s continuing interest in contemporary music: Lutoslawski, Ligeti and Penderecki – three modern ”klangkomponister” (sound texture composers), to use Nystedt’s own words. We should not take all of this too literally; Nystedt is bound to have other areas of musical interest. A pattern is, however, discernable here. One can see that the previously self-proclaimed neo-classical composer never mentions composers of the Viennese school – Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven are notably absent from the list. Knut Nystedt’s prime focus has clearly been on two areas: the fundament of vocal polyphony, and the newest developments in contemporary music.
Is this a shallow, eclectic composer, blindly following musical fashions? Most definitely it is not – Nystedt has adopted and integrated all his musical impulses and influences in his own, distinctive musical idiom. Those who believe it difficult to ”understand” twentieth century modernism, should start with Nystedt. Many music lovers find it difficult to approach avant-garde music, frightened away, perhaps, by terminology such as ”dodecaphony”, ”aleatory”, ”mobiles” and ”tone clusters”.
It is true that these elements may also be found in Nystedt’s scores; his musical craftsmanship, however, is so superb that one never really notices the composition techniques in themselves, they are simply part of his natural, organic music-making. Whether writing in a traditional or modernist style, Nystedt’s music has a strong, instinctive musical feel to it.
Seventy-six years’ experience is all well and good, but it is the quality of the work which counts. And let it be said: Nystedt’s music anno 2003 has retained its vitality. The title of one of the works on this recording is highly appropriate: Nytt er livet (New is the Life) – listen to the wonderful fountain of sounds the composer releases at the words ”ein foss av lyd” (a waterfall of sound).
Spenningens land (Land of Adventure) is the title of an early work for orchestra by Nystedt. And it appropriately describes Knut Nystedt’s life work – a land of adventure.

Track 1-6 Prayers of Kierkegaard opus 157 for mixed choir 17:42 was composed in 1999. It was commissioned by The Norwegian Soloists’ Choir for their fiftieth anniversary. The first performance took place at Oslo’s Jacob Church on 18 November 2000, performed by The Norwegian Soloists’ Choir under the leadership of Grete Pedersen.
1st is an excerpt from a discourse on John 10, 27 published in Taler ved Altergangnen om Fredagen (Addresses at Holy Communion on Fridays) (1848). 2:28
2nd is the opening of a discourse on 2 Timothy II, 12-13, published in Taler ved Altergangnen om Fredagen. 1:44
3rd is the opening of a discourse on 1 John III, 20, published in Taler ved Altergangnen om Fredagen. 4:13
4th is a diary entry from 1 February 1839, published in Søren Kierkegaards papirer (The Writings of Søren Kierkegaard) (Copenhagen 1968). 3:28
5th is a foreword to Hedningenes Bekymringer (The Heathens’ Anxieties) (1848). 3:08
6th is taken from manuscript material related to Kierkegaard’s religious writings. It is dated 1842-44 and is published in Søren Kierkegaards papirer. 2:40

Track 7 Salve Regina opus 156a for male choir 5:04 was composed in 1999. It was commissioned by Eva Bohlin and the Svanholm Singers, who gave the first performance in Lund cathedral, Sweden, on 29 May 1999 under the leadership of Eva Bohlin. The piece is based on a medieval Marian antiphon.

Track 8 The Word Became Flesh opus 162 for mixed choir (8–13 parts) 7:23 is dated 6 January 2001 and was commissioned by William H. Halverson and Marolyn Sortland Halverson. It was first performed on 12 October 2001 at Augsburg College, Minneapolis, USA, by the Augsburg College Choir under the leadership of Peter Hendrickson.

Track 9-12 Nytt er livet opus 170 for female choir 7:05 (1:42 – 2:11 – 1:42 – 1:31) was composed in 2003. It was commissioned by the Bжrum Vokalensemble who gave the first performance on 19 September 2003 in Bжrum under the leadership of Шystein Fevang. The text is taken from Olav Mosdшl’s collection of poems Missa Millennium (2000). Since 1991 Nystedt has set several of Olav Mosdшl’s texts to music. Olav Mosdшl (b.1937) writes the following about Nytt er livet: ”The idea for this text came about in the autumn of 1987 when our first grandchild was baptized. At the centre is little Jon, who was baptized at Sinsen church in Oslo. The text was later reworked as a hymn in the collection.”

Track 13-19 Jesu sieben Worte opus 171 for mixed choir 11:00 (1:15 – 2:13 – 2:27 – 1:00 – 0:49 – 1:20 – 1:52)
was composed in 2003; it was commissioned by Ensemble96 who gave the first performance in Bжrum on 19 September 2003 under the leadership of Шystein Fevang.

Track 20 Immortal Bach (J.S. Bach, arr. Knut Nystedt) for mixed choir 3:54 was composed in 1987 and was first performed on 15 June 1988 at Oslo’s Trinity Church (Trefoldighetskirken) by the Sateren Choir, Minnesota, USA, under the leadership of Leland B. Sateren. The piece is a reworking of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Komm, süsser Tod (from Geistliche Lieder, published in 1736).
Komm, süsser Tod
Komm, sel’ger Ruh
Komm führe mich in Friede
Kom, søte død
Kom, salige hvile
Kom og led meg til fred
Come, sweet death
Come, blessed rest
Come lead me to peace

The first three lines of the song are sung, and then repeated – this time the parts are moved in time in relation to one another, coming together in a consonant major chord at the end of each line. The spatial element is an important part of the composer’s reworking: the choir is divided into five equal groups spread around the concert hall or church. The surround technology of the Super Audio CD format reproduces the three-dimensional effect as envisaged by the composer.

О Кнуте Нюстеде замечают (Гроув), что вначале он писал в романтической манере, позже влияние Хиндемита и французского неоклассицизма, еще позже характерен интерес к тембру. Этот альбом – это еще позже, записи произведений рубежа века (тысячелетия, кому как нравится). Все эти интересы и влияния как бы вместе в одном флаконе. Гармоничные, неоклассические мелодии, приправленные Хиндемитом с интересными тембровыми построениями. И все только вокал. Или из буклета: «монументальное хоровое искусство с христианским перспективой и широкой, человеческой притягательностью». Немного напыщенно, но по существу правильно. Текст буклета, это, на сегодня, все, что мне известно о Нюстеде. Но знакомство состоялось. Это один из первых альбомов 2L. Лейбл, продвигая себя, и знакомит с современным национальным искусством. Запись на 24/48, это позже на значительно более высокую частоту перейдут. Но запись удалась, две номинации Греми за хор и окружающий звук - не случайны. Хор стоит впереди, с окружением зала, причем так, как Линдберг и дальше будет располагать хор в храме, записывая не хор, а скорее звучание голосов в церкви. А вот на последнем треке, переработки Баха (не узнать), пять хоров стоят вокруг, глубоко за периметром колонок и поют как бы аккордом с длительным звучанием. Но это всего на пару минут.
