Edvard Grieg and his librettist Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson were both fascinated by a great period in Norway’s past: the Viking Age, whose sagas, and fierce conflicts between Christianity and the old Norse religion, inspired all three of Grieg’s works recorded here. Landkjenning depicts the moment when Olav Trygvason (960s–1000) and his men sight the Norwegian coast for the first time on their voyage from England to Norway. As King from 995 to 1000, Olav worked single-mindedly to Christianise Norway. Conceived as a true Norwegian national opera, but left unfinished, the three scenes from Olav Trygvason explore pagan rituals and tributes to the Norse gods in anticipation of King Olav’s entrance into the pagan temple.

Review By Donald R Vroon,American Record Guide,May 2014

This is a very beautiful recording. From the very opening, with a rich male chorus (the students), you know you are in for a treat. The singers are wonderful, the sound is terrific, and the orchestra is as good as any that has recorded this music. © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide
