Knardahl in recital

Eva Knardahl was undoubtedly the premier Norwegian pianist of her generation. After a longer stay in the US, she returned to Norway to take the musical scene by storm, and for several generations of Norwegians, Eva Knardahl´s name has been synonymous with colourful pianism and a contagious good mood.

On this fantastic recording, Knardahl performs works by Isaac Albéniz, Samuel Barber, Franz Liszt and George Gershwin. Throughout, her singable musical tone and juicy harmonies comes to the forefront, and she could like few others make a piano ring with her own unique sound. Just listen to her astonishing interpretation of Albéniz´ “Cantos de Espana”, with its general mood of Moorish Spain, or her evocation of the regional American mood in Barber´s “Excursions” – rarely before has these pieces been performed as extraordinary as Knardahl does on this album.
