Norwegian contemporary piano music

Einar Røttinger (b. 1963) is establishing himself as one of the leading performers within the modern tone language for grand piano. He has worked closely with Harald Sæverud, and interpreted many of his pieces, released 3 CDs in conjunction with the 100 year anniversary of his birth, all of them received enthusiasm from both audiences and reviewers. The same year he received "Robert Levin’s Festival prize" for this work.

On ‘Avgarde’ Røttingen is interpreting from a selection of norwegian compositions for grand piano, and documenting many years of collaboration with five composers who on their own distinct ways work with the posibilities and limitations of the instrument.

The title ‘Avgarde’ kan be interpreted as disruption, going on a journey or just experiencing change. Or maybe just movement it self; the imperative that is demanded for a tone or chord to cease for another one uninteruptedly to begin. That’s how music is created.
