Put your feet up.... close your eyes... and let pianist Caren Goodin Evarts guide you into the exciting and beautiful piano music of SCANDINAVIA!
Join her on a musical expedition to experience the ambiance, the exotic atmosphere of the north lands.
In Torjussen's "From Fjord and Mountain", melodies are often
simple, harmonies uncomplicated and charming. The expression is quite joyful.
In contrast, "Land of Thousand Lakes" by Sibelius, will enchant you with a great power, and quite often, deep "pathos", indicative of the difficult life of a people living in a land of darkness for much of the year.
You will be enchanted by the music of individual pieces by Scandinavian composers, who express their delight, in "Summer Song", and "LoveSong", while Ole Olsen depicted a wild and exciting wedding legend in "Fanitul"!
So much in one Album that you won't want to miss !
