Additional Information

Realms of Asgard is a symphonic poem for brass and percussion which comprises of seven musical scenes, each reflecting my own impressions of the individual worlds found in the Yggdrasill legend. In Norse mythology, Yggdrasill is an immense Ash tree that connects the nine home-worlds of the Norse cosmos. Asgard sits at its pinnacle where the High Gods look down and oversee the activities in the other worlds. 

The Nine Worlds

Hel - Hell 

Muspelheim – The Realm of Fire

Niðavellir – A Dark Dwelling

Vanaheimr – Home of the Vanir

Jötunheimr – Home of the Giants

Niflheim – Mist Home

Álfheimr – Elf Home

Midgard – Middle Enclosure (Earth)

Asgard – Home of Æsir

The work was commissioned and premiered by Jaren Hornmusikkforening at the Grieg Hall, Bergen, Norway in 2015.
