Press Release from Quartet:
Quartet Records and NRK Television present another holiday treat — a 2-CD set featuring composer Henrik Skram’s original score to the 2016 acclaimed Norwegian TV series Snøfall (Snowfall), a fantasy Christmas tale about courage, friendship and the search for belonging.
The story is about Selma, who, having lost her parents in an accident five years ago, wishes for nothing more than a family she can belong to. The letter she writes to Santa Claus turns into a paper bird which flies to Snøfall—a magical village full of wondrous people. On her journey through this enchanting Christmas fairy tale, Selma will figure out who she is and where she belongs—although it is far from what she would have ever expected.
Talented young Norwegian composer Henrik Skram (90 Minutes, Ballet Boys, Tordenskjold & Kold) provides a warm, charming, massive orchestral tour-de-force performed by the Norwegian Radio Orchestra under the baton of Matt Dunkley, in a score full of fantasy, tender melodies and impeccably tasteful writing. Fans of John Williams, James Horner or Bruce Broughton will not be disappointed!
Henrik Skram won his second Golden Screen Award for his work on this series score.
