Editor's info:
The songs on this release -- volume 2 -- continue the chronological list from volume 1.The album begins with the remarkably special cycle Wartburg, encompassing an enormous range of singing pathos. The text by Theodor Caspari has to do with Wartburg Castle, with its sweeping history. Martin Luther sought refuge there from May 1521 to March 1522. Saint Elisabeth of Thuringia resided there from 1211 to 1228, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe visited the castle several times, and, notably, the famous "minstrel contest" at the castle was an inspiration for Wagner when he composed his opera Tannhauser. So it is not so unusual that Theodor Caspari was also inspired by the castle's history and reputation when he wrote his Wartburg texts.
After Wartburg come the last of Sigurd Lie's published texts: Sange Sub Rosa, Sol-Laug and Sidste Sange. They are followed by songs found as manuscripts and later published in the book Sanger(Songs) from 1999. Here it is interesting to see that Sigurd Lie also tried his hand at Haugtussa songs, and we find them in a National Romantic vein that is seldom seen elsewhere.
The remaining unpublished songs we have recorded are much the same as Lie's other compositions. The album closes with two strophic songs: Staren and Det er et gammelt Kvaede.

"What sticks in the mind, though, is simply the lyrical beauty of almost all of these songs, along with the lovely singing of Marianne Beate Kielland and the colorful playing of pianist Nils Anders Mortensen. The recorded sound is excellent." - Fanfare [Eivind Groven: Songs - Marianne Beate Kielland, Nils Anders Mortensen (LWC1178)]

"Keilland's even tone, fexibility and brilliant sensitivity to the text make this a rewarding collection, the intensity and drama of each song powerful and impassioned." - The Guardian [Jean Sibelius: Orchestral Songs - Marianne Beate Kielland, Norwegian Radio Orchestra, Petr Popelka (LWC1239)]

"[Kielland] She has a bright tone extending into the soprano range; she sings fearlessly and passionately, fying to high notes as if they pose no risk. Finally, her timbre is beautiful, given added brightness by a fast vibrato." - Fanfare (LWC1239)
