Champagne, Music, & Peer Gynt Sweets - Fundraiser for EGSMN Piano Competition

The annual fundraiser for EGSMN. This year’s concert theme Grieg’s Favorite Grieg Songs - Sung in English! Proceeds will go toward Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota’s 2019 Piano Competition celebrating young performers of Grieg and other Nordic composers.

Edvard Grieg wrote a total of 179 songs during his career. We know from the printed programs prepared for these concerts, most of which were preserved by Grieg himself, that he programmed some of his songs over and over again—hence, “Grieg’s favorite Grieg songs.” In 1988, the Edvard Grieg Committee – a group of musicologists from Norway and Denmark – commissioned EGSMN Board Member & reknowned Grieg scholar, William Halverson to create new English versions of most of Grieg’s song texts. The program on January 20 will use these English versions.

Performances by soprano Maria Jette, baritone Alan Dunbar, and pianist Sonja Thompson.

Aurora at First Ave

It is as if pure magic runs through AURORA’s veins. Enchanting by name and by nature, there’s something decidedly singular and strange about this tiny Nordic musician with the massive talent. With an eye-watering 200 million+ streams and 500,000+ sales for her stunning 2016 debut album, All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend, it’s hard to believe that the dynamic Norwegian singer/songwriter is still only 21, and AURORA is now pushing things forward like never before.

How do you follow up the fastest selling debut album in Icelandic history, a record that out-performed even national treasures Björk and Sigur Rós’ first releases? At first 24-year-old sensation Ásgeir, returning at last in 2017 with daringly electronic new album Afterglow, pretended to those around him that the heat wasn’t on, that the stakes weren’t high. “I used to tell most people that I didn’t feel any pressure,” he laughs now. “But I was lying. I didn’t want to go into that discussion.”
