The Fallen

by Lars L. Lien

Released 2019
'The Fallen' is a grandeur 4 part classical work from Lien following 'Good and Evil' from 2017, where he claims to have left behind his former political standpoint, in part, for an even more profound existential and religious orientation.
Part I and part III are post-modern, while Lien denies the term as valid for the work as such; it is to be considered a work of the modern era. Part II is music for the choir ensemble composed in a strict mixolydian scale. Part IV is romantic, while not traditional 19th century in nature, still rather clearly modern classical music with it's use of new ideas as regards harmony.
