Moving past mid-summer, join Laura Loge, soprano and Knut Erik Jensen, piano, as they continue their collaboration with Northwest Edvard Grieg Society, Resonance at SOMA Towers and Nordic Northwest, and venture in the mountains to the sæter (summer farm). There they will lead you on a journey with the young sæterjente (farm girl) as she enjoys her cattle, falls in love only to be abandoned, and then lets herself be taken in by the mystical world of Norwegian sprites and spirits. We’ll also introduce several Norwegian girls who are enjoying the summer and the warmth and light of the midnight sun which illuminates the Norwegian coast and countryside.

 

This is the fifth of seven concerts over three years presenting the complete songs of Edvard Grieg, sponsored by the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society.
