RESPLENDENT EASTER CELEBRATION Easter is the time for the Passions, the sacred music telling the story of Jesus’s suffering and death, each lasting several hours. Along similar lines, we have the Easter hymns. Poets and composers have always found inspiration in the themes of Easter and its many moods and feelings — from awe, festivity, and hope, via humiliation, disappointment, betrayal, anguish, and death, to victory and boundless jubilation. Seen in relation to the Passions, there are few recordings of Easter hymns. Three of Norway’s finest musicians, mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland, violinist Elise Båtnes, and organist Kåre Nordstoga, have collaborated on the album “Påsketid”, with hymns that convey all the moods of Easter. Featured as well are classical Easter works of Bach, Handel, and Gorecki. The recording aims to illuminate Easter themes and help draw attention to the beautiful Easter hymns, both familiar and lesser known. Mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland is one of Norway’s most distinguished singers and performs regularly on major concert stages in Europe and Japan. Her critically acclaimed recordings on the LAWO Classics label include “Young Elling” (LWC1072) and “Grieg” (LWC1059). Violinist Elise Båtnes, first concertmaster of Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, has performed as soloist with all the important Norwegian symphony orchestras and she continues to appear as soloist with leading orchestras and conductors around the world. Among earlier releases with LAWO Classics is her recording of duos for violin and viola by Mozart, Brustad, and Halvorsen with Henninge Båtnes Landaas (LWC1028). Kåre Nordstoga is cathedral organist at Oslo Cathedral and an active concert organist. He frequently performs a large organ repertoire, and in recent years he has been soloist with the symphony orchestras of Oslo, Bergen, and Trondheim. He has previously released three double albums of Bach’s collected organ works on the LAWO Classics label (LWC1012, LWC1035, and LWC1056).
