Sudden Landscapes was planned as an organ concerto, but evolved to something more like a large-scale symphonic painting where the organ and the orchestra continuously exchange sounds and blend in different ways. The piece is conceived as an uninterrupted series of 30 scenes.
This piece was originally scheduled to be premiered in 2014. On March 2014, Part 1 was performed, as the whole piece was not finished. Christian Vasquez conducted Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, and Nils Henrik Asheim played the organ part. This Part 1 no longer exists as a separate piece, as it is replaced by the work in full length.
