Rypdal's 'Double Concerto' is played here by one of Latvia's leading orchestras, fronted by two electric guitarists: Terje himself and Ronni Le Tekro from hard rock band TNT. It's an enjoyable, playful work, with bright melodies and guitar virtuosity foregrounded. The 'Fifth Symphony', epic in its sweep, is distinguished by Rypdal's fine feeling for orchestral colour and fresh sonorities, and bears closer relationship to Terje's other orchestral recordings on ECM, such as 'Undisonus' and 'QED'.
