Kleiberg - Mass for Modern Man (2L-136-SABD) Trondheim Symphony Orchestra and Choir - Eivind Gullberg Jensen

Ståle Kleiberg’s Mass for Modern Man is about the loss of existential meaning as an antithesis to faith and belief. The work commutes between these two extremes, and raises the following underlying question: Is belief possible for modern man? In this work, the answer is "yes"; not a resounding "yes", but a "yes" in spite of all. The work is a large-scale concert mass for two soloists, choir and orchestra where Kleiberg's neo-romantic music commutes between the intimate and the grand.
