Nordic song specialist, soprano Laura Loge (“Whether she was singing about dew, butterflies, or life Loge’s characterful and versatile voice easily adapted to each song’s style.” – The Gathering Note) and brilliant pianist Angela Draghicescu (“amazing at the piano, her playing was playful and characterized by beautiful melody” – Frettabladid – Iceland) will perform songs from their newest collaboration – an album of previously-unrecorded songs by Norwegian women entitled A Bird Cried Out (Der skreg en fugl). The duo will introduce you to this treasure trove of songs by Agathe Backer-Grøndahl, Anne Marie Ørbeck, Mon Schjelderup, Pauline Hall, Theodora Cormontan, Anna Lindeman, Hanna Marie Hansen, and many more, leaving you curious and inspired by the mere existence of this beautiful music.
