Two large compositions make up a characteristically adventurous programme from Terje Rypdal. His new album’s title piece, the 45 minute Melodic Warrior, was commissioned by the Hilliard Ensemble and recorded at the Brucknerhaus Linz in 2003 with the distinguished British vocal group and the Bruckner Orchestra, under Dennis Russell Davies. The Hilliards sing texts drawn from Native American poetry, from Chippewa, Navajo, Pima, and Papago sources, and Rypdal’s sustained electric guitar lines soar melodically and dramatically above the strings’ broad planes of sound.
