Songs from the Heart — In Concert with Melissa Holm Johansen + Stephen Swanson
April 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Soprano Melissa Holm-Johansen, accompanied by pianist Stephen Swanson, perform some of Edvard Grieg’s most moving and enduring songs in English translations from the Norwegian originals.
Songs were central to Grieg’s compositional output. His songs, largely unknown by non-Norwegian speakers, were some of his greatest works, and constitute some of the most exquisitely crafted and profoundly moving songs of the Romantic era.
These English translations are the work of noted Grieg scholar, William Halverson, author and translator of many standard works on Grieg.
This recital celebrates the completion of a historical recording of these Grieg works in translation, newly released for streaming and on CD.
