ArtistsTora Augestad (mezzo-soprano)
Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra
Pausís contemporary composition enhances the visionary dissonance of Ives as well as the contrasting melodic shifts of Weillís orchestrations, yet brings something entirely new to the equation, especially in its startling text and cabaretesque performance.
Parker and Brecht could just as well walk arm-in-arm down the conceptual pathway of understated satire, counterbalanced by the ethereal, transcendental text of Ivesís songs into a complimentary whole. Add Augestadís unique approach to these works into the equation, and the listener is served with a program certain to make them re-examine any former assumptions, and delight at the outcome.
And therein lies the timeless dimension of this mezzo-sopranoís considerable artistry. The Norwegian mezzo-soprano Tora Augestad is an artist equally at home in concert halls, theatre and cabaret stages or contemporary music festival programmes.
