Description: Monrad Johansen’s suite of 1943 is the most conservative work here, just under 19 minutes of Norwegian folk-inspired national Romanticism (as befits a member of the Norwegian Fascist Party and Nazi collaborator) whereas in Olsen (1982) and Sommerfeldt (1976) one can just glimpse the influence of Grieg’s style, while Nordheim’s way-different piece will do you no harm if you accidentally start listening to it (really!). Frida Fredrikke Waaler Wærvågen (cello), Ingrid Andsnes (piano).
