Embarking on performances of the complete songs of Edvard Grieg, the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society presents soprano, Laura Loge, and pianist, Knut Erik Jensen. Exploring songs from Grieg’s first compositional period in Norwegian, Laura and Knut Erik will bring to life miniatures from the brightest moments to the darkest points in the Norwegian composer’s life, baring his soul for his art. Treat yourself to an evening of rarely heard gems and some of Grieg’s most beloved songs performed by two specialists of Norwegian song repertoire.
This is the first of seven concerts over the next three years presenting the complete songs of Edvard Grieg, sponsored by the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society.
