BETWEEN GERMAN ROMANTICISM AND NORWEGIAN FOLK TUNES A number of recordings in recent years bear witness to a revival of interest in the music of Catharinus Elling – a composer who lived around the same time as Grieg and who, like Grieg, studied in Germany. Now, critically acclaimed and Grammy-nominated Marianne Beate Kielland and Nils Anders Mortensen have added to the Elling discography with their recording of songs by the young Elling, written while he was still living in Germany. Here are many lovely melodies composed to familiar verse of Shakespeare, Janson, Randers, and Aasen, as well as a bundle of songs with texts from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” (“The Youth’s Magic Horn”). Although Elling’s compositional style appears simpler than Grieg’s, it is never banal, and in these songs of the young composer one sees why he became a central person in Norwegian musical life. Mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland is one of Norway’s leading singers, performing regularly with prominent orchestras and conductors on major concert stages in Europe and Japan. Her close to 40 albums have brought her exceptional success in the international recording market. With his numerous recordings and concert perform-ances, Nils Anders Mortensen has distinguished himself as one of Norway’s foremost pianists. In his day-to-day musical life, he is state musician in Finnmark County, but he is active as well as a freelance musician. “Grieg” (LWC1059), their previous release on the LAWO Classics label, received glowing reviews, both in Norway and abroad. REVIEWS «If you like Grieg’s songs, you’ll probably like these. They have grown on me with repeated hearing. Kielland’s tonal luster is a pleasure to hear. Her phrasing and shaping of the vocal line is elegant. Mortensen is a fitting partner, and his nimble accompaniment of ‘Fjukande Skyer’ (Swift Moving Clouds) is impressive. The SACD sound is excellent.» R. Moore – American Record Guide reviews_LWC1072_americanrecordguide.pdf «Treat yourself to this disc and you will find new favourites you didn’t know existed.» Göran Forsling, MusicWeb International reviews_LWC1072_musicwebinternational.pdf «[...] for collectors interested in 19th-century songs, and in discovering material that they have not encountered before, these songs will provide pleasure. There is considerable variety of mood throughout the group. I know that I will listen to them again. That reaction is certainly assisted by the fine performances. Kielland and Mortensen are not just going through the motions or giving dutiful exposure to this material. They are inside the music and do their utmost to bring it to life, and Kielland has a lovely and flexible mezzo-soprano voice.» Henry Fogel – Fanfare Magazine, sept/okt 2015 reviews_LWC1072_fanfare.pdf reviews_LWC1072_fanfare_2_want_list.pdf
