Northlands (album for horn and string orchestra) by Matthew Whittall is a concertante work for horn and strings, written for Tommi Hyytiäinen and premiered by the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra with Hyytiäinen as a soloist. The work has been recorded for ALBA label, and it won the Record of the Year prize given the Finnish National Broadcasting Company in 2017.

The composer writes that Northlands was influenced by his brief experience with Iceland, its epic landscapes and otherworldly light, which had had an immediate and powerful impact both on the composer and the concept for the piece.

Duration: 23'
Solo horn (doubling natural horn in D) and strings (min. 55432)

Study score available separately (ISMN 9790550114500). The orchestral material is available for hire from the publisher.

Northlands (album for horn and string orchestra) on konsertoiva teos käyrätorvelle ja jousille. Se on sävelletty ja omistettu Tommi Hyytiäiselle, joka kantaesitti teoksen Keski-Pohjanmaan Kamariorkesterin kanssa. Teos on levytetty ALBA-levy-yhtiölle. Levytys voitti Ylen vuoden levy -palkinnon 2017.

Säveltäjän mukaan Islanti, sen näkymät ja erikoinen valo, ovat vaikuttaneet teoksen muotoon ja konseptiin. Islannin vierailu jätti jälkensä myös säveltäjään itseensä.

Kesto: 23'
Partituuri saatavissa erikseen (ISMN 9790550114500). Orkesterimateriaali on vuokrattavissa kustantajalta.
