The powefull voice of Elg visits the classical song treasures

A simple nine-bar tune by Charles Ives has lent his name to this album, “Remembrance”, a collaborative project between the initiator and pianist Grete Helle Rasmussen, composer and trombonist Helge Havsgård Sunde and the legendary Norwegian rock vocalist Elg. Elg has for more than ten years been the very voice of Norwegian rock. He has at every performance made it obvious, that there is no one equal and certainly no one his superior in intensity of expression, in communication of and identification with his material. Firmly gazing, raising his forefinger and prompting us to pay close attention, he makes the rock´n´roll arena as well as the classical stage his own, undisputed domain.

Elg could have stayed with Dance With a Stranger, that most powerful Norwegian rock ensemble. Helge and Grete could have been content with the refined artfulness of their academical garden. But the major part of this trio´s talent is curiosity. So they simply had to erode the barriers between their respective genres to meet in a musical no man´s land – no road signs there. Together, they picked up, lovingly, some dozen tunes, Purcell, Schubert, Quilter, Fauré, Strauss, Ives, Barber, Britten, Berg, Tveitt, some dozen hazy little stones among the beach wreckage, a string of amber memories for our remembrance.
