On Lasse Thoresen's Latest: Innovative Opus 42 wins prestigious prize

 7 July 2010, Since his breakthrough as a composer more than 30 years ago, Lasse Thoresen has been searching for a musical language that brings the world's diverse cultures together.

Now, one of his innovative vocal works is being acclaimed for the similarities it draws between ancient and modern, as well as Scandinavian folk music and sounds more associated with the Middle East. The piece, titled Opus 42, has won a prestigious music award.

I wonder how soon a CD of this Baha'i-composed music will be available. -gw
