Wighton Cappuccino Concert - 'An auld acquaintance forgot!...'

Saturday April 23, 2005 at 11:00
Marryat Hall, Caird Hall Complex, Dundee
£3.50 (coffee+concert) at door or box office. Cappuccino served from 10:30am
  1. Nordlands trompet Op 13 - David Monrad Johansen
  2. Stelldichein, from 'Haugtussa' Op 67 No 4 - Edvard Grieg
'An auld acquaintance forgot! - Norway's Skottland discovered in song'

Two great Norwegians of Scottish descent - father of Norwegian poetry, Petter Dass, and father of her national music, Edvard Grieg brought together in a programme of stunningly beautiful song. Settings from Dass' ebullient Nordlands trompet (Trumpet of the north) by Norwegian composer, David Monrad Johansen are partnered in their UK premiere with Edvard Grieg's consummate song-cycle Haugtussa (The mountain maid). From the gossip and banter of Norway's western isles, to a compelling tale of love and betrayal set in her highland shielings, this is Norwegian song at its most sublime.

Historical Musician in Residence, Sally Garden, brings an exciting new commission to this, the latest of her popular 'coffee-house' concerts in the elegant Marryat Hall, Dundee. In special collaboration with respected literary translator, Anna Paterson, and versatile pianist Donald Hawksworth, join her as she awakens the poetry of north Norway's Robert Burns - C17 priest-poet Petter Dass - in his merchant father's home city of Dundee. A morning of delightful musical discovery in a relaxed and friendly setting. More at www.wighton.org
