Editor's Info:
Norwegian composer Morten Gaathaug has largely worked in a landscape influenced by the classical music tradition. He has not regarded his task as that of inventing his own musical language, but prefers rather to find inspiration in experiments with form and in using the old language in new ways. Important sources of inspiration are traditional folk music (from Norway and abroad), as well as impressions from nature, birdsong in particular. The latter can be found in works such as “Fugler i min natt” (“Birds in My Night”), “24 fugleportretter” (“24 Bird Portraits”) for piano, and “Ornis musicalis”.

Gaathaug has devoted special attention to particular turn-of-the-century artistic currents around 1900 associated with composers Sergei Prokofiev (1891–1953) and Borghild Holmsen (1865–1938), as well as with poets such as Ragnhild Jolsen (1875–1908), Rainer Maria Rilke (1875–1926) and Sigbjorn Obstfelder (1866–1900). This was a period of upheaval, in which modernism pushed forward with many new forms of artistic expression. Yet at the same time, it was important to maintain a connection to the past, renewing the traditional tonal foundation.

On this recording Norwegian mezzo-soprano Marianne E. Andersen gives a performance of Gaathaugs works with lyrics by Jolsen, Rilke and Obstfelder.

Morten Gaathaug (born 20 April 1955) is from Sande in Vestfold. He completed a degree in piano and music education theory at Barratt Due Music Institute in the spring of 1978. There he studied composition with Johan Kvandal, counterpoint with Olve Borgir, and piano with Kari Edgren Gierloff. In the winter of 1981–82, he was the recipient of a Slovakian government scholarship to study at the Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts in Bratislava, where his teachers were Eva Fischerová (piano) and Vladimír Bokes (composition). While a student there, his first string quartet was premiered on Slovakian Radio. Later he completed degree work at the University of Oslo and continued piano studies with Hanna Marie Weydahl and Jens Harald Bratlie. He has a Master’s degree in composition from the Norwegian Academy of Music.

Marianne E. Andersen began singing in the Norwegian Radio Girls’ Choir at the age of five. Her musical education continued at the Royal Academy of Music and National Opera Studio in London, where she won many prizes and graduated with highest honours. Marianne gave her debut recital in the Oslo University Hall, accompanied by pianist Einar Steen-Nokleberg. Her broad repertoire ranges from baroque to contemporary music, and she has recorded with Deutsche Grammophon, Simax, and Naxos, among others. Marianne is in frequent demand internationally as an opera singer and concert performer. She has appeared as soloist in Mozart’s “Requiem”, Beethoven’s “Ninth Symphony”, and Mahler’s “Das Lied von der Erde”, and she has had leading roles in the operas “Carmen”, “Rigoletto”, and “Idomeneo”, to name but a few. Marianne has had guest appearances at major international festivals, and she has participated in many Norwegian premier performances, among them Morten Gaathaug’s Jolsen cantata, “Den Rode Host” (“The Red Autumn”) in 2009.
