In the framework of its partnership with the Académie of the Aix-en-Provence Festival, Alpha presents the recital of a Norwegian soprano already well known in opera houses and especially for her interpretations of Mozart heroines whom she embodies under the direction of the greatest conductors such as Nikolaus Harnoncourt and René Jacobs. For this first recital, which she recorded with another eminent member of the Aix Académie, pianist Alphonse Cemin, she has chosen a programme combining her roots, with Grieg and Agathe Backer Grøndahl (1847-1907), pianist-composer born in 1847 of whom we discover a few songs, and those masters of the German Lied Richard Strauss et Hugo Wolf in whose songs her pure, luminous voice works wonders.
