About the album

Christiania Mannskor was established in 2009 and is dedicated to the renewal and revitalization of men’s choir singing in Norway. The ensemble works closely with several of the country’s leading composers, and works with both old and new compositions for men’s choir in an attempt to make the genre more accessible to the people of Oslo and across the country. The group is made up of eighteen professional singers. “Something Blue” is the ensemble’s second recording of Norwegian music on the LAWO Classics label. Their first release, “Something New,” was the first in the series of what will be four albums and consists only of works by Norwegian composers written in the past twenty years.

Edvard Grieg

Edvard Hagerup Grieg was a Norwegian composer and pianist. He is widely considered one of the leading Romantic era composers, and his music is part of the standard classical repertoire worldwide. His use and development of Norwegian folk music in his own compositions put the music of Norway in the international spectrum, as well as helping to develop a national identity, much as Jean Sibelius and Antonín Dvořák did in Finland and Bohemia, respectively. Grieg is regarded as simultaneously nationalistic and cosmopolitan in his orientation, for although born in Bergen and buried there, he travelled widely throughout Europe, and considered his music to express both the beauty of Norwegian rural life and the culture of Europe as a whole.

Grieg is regarded as simultaneously nationalistic and cosmopolitan in his orientation, for although born in Bergen and buried there, he travelled widely throughout Europe, and considered his music to express both the beauty of Norwegian rural life and the culture of Europe as a whole. He is the most celebrated person from the city of Bergen, with numerous statues depicting his image, and many cultural entities named after him.
