Boomkat product review for:

johann johannsson - Viroulegu Forsetar

Finally available again! We've been waiting for this second album from Iceland's Johann Johannsson with bated breath, anything even vaguely as majestic, original or beautiful as his massively acclaimed debut "Englaborn" would come as a much needed addition to this year's frankly astonishing collection of minimal music for home listening. "Viroulegu Forsetar" is all that and more, a breathtaking hour-long composition in four parts that reeks of all the majesty and grandeur of classical music as it seeps into the realm of imaginary soundtracking. Written for and performed by 11 Brass players, percussion, electronics, organ and piano, Johannson seems intent on making himself one of the most notable modern composers working in the field today. Grand in scale and ambition, paced to perfection and baring all the hallmarks of classic cinematic scoring, "Viroulegu Forsetar" is an absolute must, another incredible find from those ever-inspiring ears over at Touch. Stunning music. **CD comes with a bonus hybrid DVD-Audio (both NTSC and PAL compatible, for world-wide use) with a high resolution 96 khz, 24bit 5.1 surround mix and a 96khz 24bit stereo mix - the DVD does NOT include any visual content**
