About the album

SOUNDS OF NORWEGIAN CELLO
The music on this CD embodies some of the core works of the Norwegian cello repertoire and spans a time period of 100 years. At the centre is Grieg’s cello sonata from 1883. It is still the best known internationally, but in its wake have come a number of beautiful new compositions.

In Monrad Johansen’s “Suite”, Sparre Olsen’s “Metamorfose” and Sommerfeldt’s “Mini-suite” we can glimpse the influence of Grieg’s style, while Nordheim’s “Clamavi”, which with its strong musical expression already graces the repertoire of an increasing number of cellists, has a completely different tonal language.

Frida Fredrikke Waaler Wærwågen is a Norwegian cellist with a long and impressive list of accomplishments. She began lessons at Horten Music School at age five and later studied with professors Aage Kvalbein, Truls Mørk, Frans Helmerson and Torleif Thedéen. She is now a freelance cellist based in Oslo and in frequent demand as chamber musician and substitute principal cello with Norwegian orchestras, in addition to serving on the faculty of “Musikk på Majorstua” as lecturer in cello. Frida Fredrikke plays a Nicolas Lupot cello from 1823, kindly lent to her by Dextra Musica.

Ingrid Andsnes has established herself as one of Norway’s leading pianists. The vigour of her playing and her exceptional ability to communicate have made her all the more endearing to her audiences. In 2015 Ingrid released her debut solo CD with Beethoven’s “Diabelli Variations”. It received glowing reviews and served as a springboard to a concert at Carnegie Hall, where she received a standing ovation.
NORWEGISCHE CELLOKLÄNGE
Die Musik auf dieser CD verkörpert einige der Kernwerke des norwegischen Cellorepertoires und erstreckt sich über einen Zeitraum von 100 Jahren. Im Mittelpunkt steht Griegs Cellosonate von 1883. Sie ist nach wie vor die international bekannteste, aber in ihrem Gefolge sind eine Reihe schöner neuer Kompositionen entstanden.
In Monrad Johansens "Suite", Sparre Olsens "Metamorfose" und Sommerfeldts "Minisuite" kann man den Einfluss von Griegs Stil erkennen, während Nordheims "Clamavi", das mit seinem starken musikalischen Ausdruck bereits das Repertoire einer wachsenden Zahl von Cellisten ziert, eine ganz andere Tonsprache hat.
Frida Fredrikke Waaler Wærwågen ist eine norwegische Cellistin mit einer langen und beeindruckenden Liste von Erfolgen. Mit fünf Jahren begann sie mit dem Unterricht an der Horten Musikschule und studierte später bei den Professoren Aage Kvalbein, Truls Mørk, Frans Helmerson und Torleif Thedéen. Heute ist sie freischaffende Cellistin mit Sitz in Oslo und häufig gefragt als Kammermusikerin und stellvertretende Solocellistin bei norwegischen Orchestern sowie als Dozentin für Cello an der Fakultät "Musikk på Majorstua". Frida Fredrikke spielt ein Nicolas Lupot Cello von 1823, das ihr freundlicherweise von Dextra Musica geliehen wurde.
Ingrid Andsnes hat sich als eine der führenden Pianistinnen Norwegens etabliert. Die Lebendigkeit ihres Spiels und ihre außergewöhnliche Kommunikationsfähigkeit haben sie umso liebenswerter für ihr Publikum gemacht. Im Jahr 2015 veröffentlichte Ingrid ihre erste Solo-CD mit Beethovens "Diabelli-Variationen". Es erhielt glänzende Kritiken und diente als Sprungbrett zu einem Konzert in der Carnegie Hall mit Standing Ovations.

INGRID ANDSNES: PIANO
Ingrid Andsnes (born 1978 in Karmøy, Norway) is a highly accomplished pianist and one of Norwayʼs most endearingly passionate musicians. Her love for music is as inspiring as her joy in performing is striking.

In 2015 Ingrid released her debut solo CD featuring the monumental “Diabelli Variations” by Beethoven and “Diabelli Cadenza” by the Norwegian composer Lars Petter Hagen. The recording received glowing reviews in the international press, including the New York Times, and it served as a springboard to a performance at Carnegie Hall, where she received a standing ovation.

Ingrid has performed as soloist with a number of Norwegian Orchestras, including the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Norwegian Radio Orchestra. In 2010 she recorded Mozart’s Piano Concerto no. 12 with the Telemark Chamber Orchestra.

In collaboration with some of Norway’s finest musicians, including Solveig Kringelborn, Arve Tellefsen, Håvard Gimse, and the Norwegian Soloists’ Choir, Ingrid has made a significant contribution to concert life at home and abroad. She is a popular festival musician and performs at leading classical music festivals in Norway, among them the Bergen International Festival, the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, the Oslo Chamber Music Festival, the St. Olav International Festival, the Nordland Music Festival, and the Hardanger Music Festival.

In recent years, Ingrid Andsnes has also enjoyed exploring the pianist’s role outside the traditional boundaries of classical music. She often collaborates in contemporary music projects, working with composers such as Ørjan Matre, Marcus Paus, Julian Skar and Lars Petter Hagen. She has performed Ørjan Matreʼs “Duet for solo piano” — a work for piano and contemporary dancer — written especially for her. In 2018 she collaborated with Julian Skar on the release "Exhaust and Renew", with piano-based compositions.

Ingrid studied with Professor Joan Havill at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and with Professor Jiri Hlinka at Barratt Due Institute of Music in Oslo. She has won both national and international prizes, among them the Janáček Prize at the Firkušný Competition in the Czech Republic in 2003. In Norway she has received a number of prestigious grants, including a three-year work scholarship from Government Grants for Artists.
