Notes & Reviews:
Edvard Grieg (1843-1907) the national romantic and Olav Anton Thommessen (1946-) the modernist come together here in the tale of "Haugtussa" and her life, her love and her path through the Underworld to redemption. Thommessen has helped himself to many of Grieg's compositions: From "Norwegian Folk Songs", "Peasant Dances", his chamber music and several of the lyrical pieces; adapting it, deleting it and following it in a way that contribute to the scope of Garborg's poetry. Thommessen's musical collage is given an intense and gripping performance by Marianne Beate Kielland and Nils Anders Mortensen.Notes & Reviews:
