ADMIRED: RIKARD NORDRAAK Now on this new recording by the much sought-after Norwegian soprano Helene Wold and the world-famous pianist Eugene Asti we can at last experience Rikard Nordraak’s songs and piano pieces one and all. Rikard Nordraak (1842-1866) is best known for having composed the music for the Norwegian national anthem, with which he scored a success in 1864. Nordraak was a first cousin of Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson and set a number of Bjørnson’s works to music. In Copenhagen he made the acquaintance of Edvard Grieg. Grieg was infected with Nordraak’s enthusiasm for everything Norwegian and later dedicated some works to him. Rikard Nordraak died of tuberculosis in Berlin, just 23 years old. Nordraak is a composer with whom most are familiar, but few know the scope of his vigorous and charming songs and virtuosic piano pieces. This is the first modern recording that treats all his songs and piano works. Soprano Helene Wold has a repertoire ranging from early medieval to contemporary music, with a special fondness for the art song and lied. Pianist Eugene Asti is accompanist for such distinguished singers as Bryn Terfel, Sarah Connolly, Margaret Price, Felicity Lott, Sophie Karthäuser, among others. The decades-long musical collaboration of Wold and Asti has included performances at Troldhaugen and in Queen Elisabeth Hall, as well as live broadcasts of concerts for BBC Radio 3 in England. This is their second recording on the LAWO Classics label. Their first, “Roser og Kjerlighed” (LWC1029), was released in 2011.
