On Remembering, the Danish cellist Jakob Kullberg continues his collaborations with two of the foremost Nordic composers: Per Norgård and Kaija Saariaho. Praised internationally for his performances of the modern cello concerto, Kullberg regards the concerto form as the encounter of an individual soloist with the sound world of a composer. With living composers this approach often results in an unusual degree of collaboration, as the works gathered here bear witness to. Since 1999, Kullberg has enjoyed a close and unique partnership with Norgård which has resulted in a large number of works. Between, the opening work on the album, hails from a time before this, but Norgård's viola concerto Remembering Child in it's version for the cello is very much an example of Kullberg's process. He has not only transferred the concerto to his own instruments, but has also - in consultation with the composer - written his own cadenza as well as added details to the score. Likewise, at a climactic point exactly halfway through Saariaho's concerto Notes on Light, Kullberg creates an expressive space of his own, with a two-minute cadenza he has composed himself. In this work, as well as in Norgård's Between, Kullberg is supported by the BBC Philharmonic, with Sinfonia Varsovia appearing in the closing concerto.
