Geir Inge Lotsberg & Håvard Gimse

Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) Audio CDPurchased

Geir Inge Lotsberg og Håvard Gimse are performing music by Carl Nielsen in this recording made in March/April 2001 at Troldhaugen in Bergen and in the Jondal Church in Hardanger. Producer was Lars-Erik ter Jung, and engineer was Jørgen Træen. VG: The works for solo violin are Nielsen's resounding declarations of love for the instrument. Lotsberg's compelling performance bears witness to his deep devotion to the journey in the opposite direction. Politiken, Copenhagen: These musicians have a story to tell, the energy with which to tell it, and respect for the structural elements of the pieces. Nor is there any reason to be dissatisfied with the technically demanding solo works, which Lotsberg plays with bite and contrast in the resonance of a church.
