Indeed, striking timbres and rhythmic vitality were the chief assets of “Northern Lights,” a 25-minute work in four movements. The cello’s double-stopped lines, drones and eerie keening evoked Norway’s hardanger fiddle. The piano part, though seemingly cool and reticent, included treacherous metrical juxtapositions; in one eye-popping measure near the end of the third movement, five-beat patterns in the right hand scuttled over groupings of three and four notes in the left.
