Resonance at SOMA Towers and the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society present the fifth concert of performances of the complete songs of Edvard Grieg. Laura Loge, soprano and Knut Erik Jensen, piano will perform The Complete Songs of Edvard Grieg: The Mountain Maid.
Grieg’s beloved Haugtussa will be the centerpiece of this program, and will include songs not originally published with the song cycle, but that give even greater insight into the story, poet and composer. To round out the theme, these two experts in Grieg’s song repertoire will also perform other wonderfully summer, mountain and woman centered song. Enjoy a warm evening on the proverbial Norwegian hillside with a lovely Norwegian farm girl and her beloved cows and sheep!
