Notes & Reviews:

Grieg's songs based on texts by Garborg, Ibsen, and Vinje have never before been brought together on one recording. Now, critically acclaimed and Grammy®-nominated mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland and pianist Nils Mortensen have recorded these songs, and with their authentic interpretations they make an important contribution to the rich variety of Grieg releases.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The Grieg song competition includes Anne Sophie von Otter, Marianne Hirsti, Monica Groop, and Katarina Karneus, more interesting voices all. Still, Kielland has given us a nice selection, and her accompanist is deft and dramatically involved. The booklet supplies texts and translations. Anyone partial to the self-effacing, modern vibratoless school of singing might like this.
