Berit Meland, norsk lyrisk sopran, gjorde sin solo debut i Carnegie Hall, New York, med denne konserten i 2017. Nå kommer konserten til Oslo og har fått navnet "KLASSISK SKANDINAVISK KONSERTAFTEN". Dale Fundling, født i USA, bosatt i Berlin, vil akkompagnere henne på piano, i Oslo, som han gjorde det i Carnegie Hall.
Publikum i New York sier:
”A magic night in Carnegie Hall yesterday.”
”Nice program and beautiful singing.”
”Your timbre..it is like the nature is resonating in your voice!”
Repertoiret er klassisk skandinavisk musikk komponert av Edvard Grieg, Jean Sibelius, Hugo Alfven, Carl Nielsen, Gunnar de Fremurie og Gösta Nyström. Mulig vil vi og få høre Three Fantasies for piano av Wilhelm Stenhammar. I valg av repertoire har Berit latt seg inspirere av vår egen Kirsten Flagstad og hennes konsertprogram funnet i arkivene til Carnegie Hall.
”This music is an important part of the Scandinavian tradition and heritage of art songs, known as “romanse”. The songs chosen reflects the Scandinavian and the Nordic nature: the sun, the sea, the earth, the sky, the flowers, the birds and also the range of emotions which follows the changing of seasons during a year and the emotions that follows love and devotion between people.”
