Despite the dry acoustics Knut Erik the pianist and I really enjoyed the concert on Sunday. The venue was perfect and intimate and we had a quality audience.
The Friday before we jumped on a cheap plane down to Oslo and worked on the piece with one of Knut Eriks teachers. Wow what an inspiration! The piece “Haugtussa” continues to develop vocally, dramatically and musically and this is such and exiting time for us both. The song cycle is a huge challenge because it covers a wide specter of emotions from being really low to being playful and happy an emotional roller costar in other words. We are both looking forward to continue our development and future collaborations.
