Experience the kaleidoscopic colors of Norwegian music with soprano soloist Laura Loge and conductor Julia Tai. A contemporary of Edvard Grieg, Agathe Backer-Grøndahl was considered Norway’s most prominent pianist of her time and wrote over 400 compositions. One of her earlier compositions, Scherzo for Orchestra, is full of energy and imagination. Inspired by Norwegian folk poems, David Monrad Johansen‘s Seven Songs (Syv Sange) employs impressionistic techniques to depict the mythical nature of Norwegian folklore. The concert will finish with Grieg’s beloved Holberg Suite.

Soprano Laura Loge has been hailed for her “luminous stage presence” and “characterful and versatile voice.” She has appeared with the Seattle Opera, Puget Sound Opera, Boston Opera Collaborative, Mostly Nordic Chamber Music Series, Second City Chamber Music Series, Thaliah Symphony, Seattle Modern Orchestra, Masterworks Chorale and Orchestra, and many more, as well as numerous concerts and recitals. Additionally, Loge specializes in Nordic art song which she has performed across the United States and in Norway, and she gives presentations, workshops, and masterclasses on Norwegian lyric diction and song repertoire to students of all ages.

Presented by Philharmonia Northwest.
