Description: Olav is the 1888 result of 15 years of attempts to write a Norwegian national opera: three scenes lasting 35 minutes in a declamatory vocal style and with a strong modal color to the score. Also otherwise unavailable is the nine-minute vocal "scene" At the Cloister, an early work not yet characteristic of the mature composer. Norwegian-English texts. Bergen Philharmonic Choir, Bergen Vocal Ensemble, Voci Nobili, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra; Ole Kristian Ruud
