Expedition Audio Recommended
Rivertz' music is tonal and quite beautiful. It is not without its own subtle modernity however and it is this that makes it so engaging and interesting.

Rescued from obscurity - the collected piano music of Johannes M. Rivertz! Johannes Midelfart Rivertz (1908 - 1988) is a very special composer in the history of Norwegian classical music. His style is markedly personal, but like many of his colleagues of the same generation, his music was destined for obscurity. Thanks to pianist Rune Alver's interest and efforts, Rivertz's original piano compositions are once again beginning to receive attention. The pieces are often found in his concert program, and here for the first time ever we have a complete recording of the composer's collected piano works! Rune Alver made his debut as pianist at the age of 20. He was born in Bergen and educated at Bergen Music Conservatory and the Norwegian Academy of Music, where he received his diploma in 1986. Alver is active as soloist and chamber musician and maintains a rigorous concert schedule, with recent performances in Germany, France, Russia, China, and South Africa.
