Notes & Reviews:

In this recital of Alnæs' atmospheric songs, Eriksen, whose playing of Alnæs' piano works can be heard on an earlier Toccata Classics CD, returns to his music in the company of Solvang, one of Norway's best mezzos. This CD marks the 140th anniversary of Alnæs' birth and the 80th of his death and includes a number of word premiere recordings.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Norwegians rejoice! The music of Eyvind Alnaes (1872-1932) is championed by Norwegian pianist Erling R. Eriksen, this time with Norwegian mezzo Beth-Ann Solvang. Previously he recorded Alnaes songs with Bodil Arnesen for Simax (N/D 1994). Many of the 27 songs heard here are recorded for the first time. Solvang's light voice sounds more like a soubrette. Her interpretation of the songs is expressive and nicely nuanced. Eriksen handles the often challenging accompaniments skillfully.
