Notes & Reviews:

A number of recordings in recent years bear witness to a revival of interest in the music of Catharinus Elling, a composer who lived around the same time as Grieg. Now, critically acclaimed and Grammy®-nominated mezzo-soprano Marianne Beate Kielland and pianist Nils Anders Mortensen have added to the Elling discography with their recording of songs by the young Elling, written while he was still living in Germany.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
Kielland's tonal luster is a pleasure to hear. Her phrasing and shaping of the vocal line is elegant. Mortensen is a fitting partner, and his nimble accompaniment of 'Fjukande Skyer' (Swift Moving Clouds) is impressive. The SACD sound is excellent.
