Description: Dying young and having showed great promise is a good way to become a national hero and so it was for Nordraak whose loss was especially mourned and whose memory was especially enshrined in Norway by Grieg. So here are some of the seeds of what could have been another strand in the fiber of Norway’s National Romanticism. German, Norwegian-English texts. Helene Wold (soprano), Eugene Asti (piano), Vegard Lund (guitar).
