Bergen International Festival Programme Note:
Throughout the corona period soprano Lise Davidsen and pianist Leif Ove Andsnes have harvested brilliant reviews for their concerts together, In January 2022 they are due to release their Grieg album – their first recording collaboration – centred on the Haugtussa song cycle.

The concert programme consists of excerpts from their Grieg album, from Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder and from the songs dedicated by Richard Strauss to his wife on the occasion of their marriage. With two musical greats joining forces to interpret Norwegian heritage and German lieder, there can be little doubt that the result will be anything other than exquisite.
