About

"As my career has progressed, I have had the chance to make numerous recordings featuring a variety of repertoires, and I have always felt the desire to record the songs of Sibelius.

"A wonderful opportunity presented itself when the
Norwegian Radio Orchestra with Chief Conductor Petr Popelka expressed its willingness to be part of such a recording.

"Virtually all Sibelius songs are written for voice and piano, but many of them seem as though made for orchestral sounds and instrumental subtlety. Therefore a number of his finest songs have fortunately been orchestrated, and it is these editions we have used for this recording.

"A few of the orchestrations were done by Sibelius himself, one by his contemporary, Simon Parmet (né Pergament), while several were orchestrated by his own son-in-law, conductor Jussi Jalas.

"This album presents orchestrated songs of Sibelius from four opus numbers:
17, 36, 37 and 38."
- Marianne Beate Kielland

Considered today one of Europe's leading singers, mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland is famous for her strong stage presence and musical integrity.

Gramophone magazine writes about her: "The mezzo-soprano is quite outstanding: strong, firm, sensitive in modulations, imaginative in her treatment of words, with a voice pure in quality, wide in range and unfalteringly true in intonation."

Reviews

These four cycles of Sibelius songs come from the 1890s and early 1900s. Like the contemporaneous First and Second Symphonies, a Romantic warmth pulsates from these rich, lyrical works. Mezzo Kielland balances purity and ardour perfectly.
BBC Music Magazine
[Kielland’s] rootedness works well in the context of a close recording with a small orchestra exceptionally conducted by Petr Popelka who points up the Nordic Noir in these gloomy poems. […] Best of all are ‘I natten’ (‘In the night’), where the plain upfrontedness of Kielland’s delivery works well with the tiptoeing orchestra; […] ‘En slanda’ (‘The Dragonfly’) with fine word-painting and good sense of the silences
Gramophone
this recital will open up a new world for many a Sibelius enthusiast unfamiliar with these lovely songs.
