About the album

Johan Kvandal's tonal constancy was the bedrock for everything he wrote. Not even during the mid-1960s avant-gardism was he led off-track.
It can therefore be said that there is a common thread in his vocal music, from the very first songs of 1939 up until the Knut Hamsun opera "Mysteries" in 1993, by which time his many years of experience in writing melodies for voice had reached its peak. His encounters with the Norwegian cultural heritage in his childhood and adolescence were quite literally the root notes of his entire song repertoire.

ISA KATHARINA GERICKE – SOPRANO
Isa Katharina Gericke is known as a versa­tile and colourful artist in concert, chamber music and opera, and is acclaimed for her programming, interpretation and communi­cation skills. She performs repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary music. Her love of Lieder and art songs has resulted in well-received performances combining the­atre and music, celebrating the life and work of legendary Nordic singers Eva Sars Nan­sen, Kirsten Flagstad and Jenny Lind. Fur­ther facets of Isa’s versatility can be seen in the cabaret Frauen sind keine Engel, featur­ing music from Berlin in the 1930s and 40s.

Isa is a sought-after programmer for various classical music projects, and she has been Artistic Director of Kongsberg´s chamber music festival Glogerfestspillene since its beginning in 2001.

Isa graduated from the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo and the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin. She has won several awards, including the very first Wessel-pris, awarded by Norske Selskab for her contribution to the promotion of Norwegian vocal music.

Solo engagements have included collabo­rations with Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, Akademie für alte Musik Berlin, Bremen Phil­harmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orches­tra, Czech Philharmonic Orchestra and con­ductors Sir Andrew Davies, Manfred Honeck, Frans Brüggen, Philippe Herreweghe and Rinaldo Alessandrini.

Isa is a frequent guest at chamber music festivals in Norway and abroad, and her CD recordings for Simax Classics and LAWO Classics all have a connection to the Nordic art song repertoire. Her previous recording on the LAWO Classics label, Budbærersken (LWC1120), was a salute to Kirsten Flagstad.


JOACHIM KNOPH – PIANO
Pianist Joachim Knoph is an active soloist and chamber musician who has performed in a number of countries. He has collaborated with prominent musicians and singers and is the recipient of several prizes including the Yamaha Music Foundation award.

In 2016, he released an internationally dis­tributed solo CD of Johan Kvandal’s com­plete music for solo piano on the Grand Piano/Naxos label, receiving very favourable reviews. He has also previously been a solo­ist on CD recordings with the Norwegian Ra­dio Orchestra, and has premiered a number of new works.

In addition, Joachim Knoph’s activity as a composer has become increasingly high-yielding, with his choral music especially being frequently performed in recent years.

Knoph is a graduate of the Norwegian Acad­emy of Music, the Barratt Due Institute of Music, the Malmö Academy of Music, L’École Normale de Musique “Alfred Cortot” in Paris, as well as a study period at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. He has studied with Einar Steen-Nøkleberg, Jirí Hlìnka, Nelson Delle-Vigne Fabbri, Caroline Palmer and others. He received his first tu­ition from Helene Jensen, Wolfgang Plagge and Jens Harald Bratlie. He has partici­pated in a number of masterclasses, includ­ing those with Philippe Entremont, Jerome Lowenthal and Staffan Scheja.
