The Complete Songs of Edvard Grieg: The Human Condition

  April 2 @ 7:30 pm | HOSTED BY: Northwest Edvard Grieg Society

7:30 pm | Cost: $25

Resonance at SOMA Towers
288 106th Ave NE #203
Bellevue, WA 98004 United States


For our final concert of the Complete Songs of Edvard Grieg will bring all three artists together to perform some of Grieg’s most poignant songs to texts by A. O. Vinje and Otto Benzon. Soprano Laura Loge will sing Grieg’s beloved Vinje Songs opus 33 plus a few posthumously published songs and baritone Alan Dunbar will sing Grieg’s two final sets of songs with texts by Otto Benzon, opuses 69 and 70. Grieg’s songs to Vinje texts bring into perspective his fascination with the complexity of the human condition, highlighting the dichotomy set forth in Vinje’s poetry. The Benzon songs bring us into Grieg’s last and most experimental period of his composition career, hinting at what would have come had he lived another twenty years: impressionism and expressionism. Of course, Knut Erik Jensen will return to amaze us all with his virtuosity and amazing subtlety, perfectly suited to Grieg’s musical style.

This is the final concert of seven over three years presenting the complete songs of Edvard Grieg, sponsored by the Northwest Edvard Grieg Society.

This concert is supported, in part, by a grant from the Washington State Arts Commission.
