Performers Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Berg, Webern, and Schönberg all inhabited a borderland between tonality and atonality. This CD from LAWO Classics is entitled Früh because the works date from an early period in the career of each of the three composers, and they are extraordinarily beautiful. A break with tonality is imminent, but the music is still firmly anchored in the tonal tradition. The songs are seldom performed, and there are few recordings of the material. Thus, it is all the more satisfying to present Grammy nominees Marianne Beate Kielland and Nils Anders Mortensen with this magnificent late Romantic repertoire (2011, Best Classical Vocal Solo).

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
Marianne Beate Kielland has a wonderful instrument, and she wields it admirably. Her intonation and diction are sure, and her comfort with this repertoire is clear. She seems to effortlessly communicate a complex series of poetic states. Nils Anders Mortensen's accompaniment is exactly appropriate for this music: never heavy, but always very present; he has a few opportunities to shine, and his playing does sparkle. This is a minor matter in comparison to the stunning music and the penetrating performances.
