Notes & Reviews:

In "Nordic Melodies" we find Grieg in passionate play with simple folk songs. The work sparkles with harmonization and expression, developing a whole story from just a few short stanzas. The "Holberg Suite", loved for its beauty and feared for its challenges, is a fusion of European musical tradition and a genuine Norwegian sound palette. The Trondheim Soloists follow up with two brilliant solists in newly commissioned music, but characterized by the same liveliness and tenderness. Wild nature and Nordic light are essential elements of the folk style. This lies at the core of the Trondheim Soloists' soul, a meeting between the musical playfulness and passions.
