Spor ikke om kjaerlighet
ArtistsMarianne Beate Kielland (mezzo-soprano)
Nils Anders Mortensen (piano)
“What, exactly, makes a melody ‘good’? I’ve been looking into this for years. From studying Palestrina’s strict rules, all the way to studying the American songwriters who created the great ‘Evergreens’ catalogue. Writing for the voice is of great interest to me – especially musical drama. Throughout my years as a composer, I’ve composed songs. Everything from opera arias to simple songs. This album unites several of the genres I’ve worked on.
“The songs are based on opera, musicals, theatre, folk song programs and poetry evenings. What unites them is my love for poetry. And on this album, you will make the acquaintance of some of the poets I admire the most. I’ve been really looking forward to this album. It is a gift for a composer to have his songs performed by such wonderful artists as Marianne Beate Kielland and Nils Anders Mortensen. I am grateful, proud and happy!”
