10 different nationalities inspired by Edvard Munch

Composers were not hard to ask when it came to these commissions. The rather exotic challenge of writing music to a painting – and by Edvard Munch at that – does not come every day. But equally exiting was the idea of writing a solo piece for one of the most renowned young violinists today: Henning Kraggerud. This sublime recording was done in Rainbow Studios, engineered by Jan Erik Kongshaug.

‘Love’s Beach’. The exclusive premiere is developed further in concerts

The Munch Suite was given its premiere at Haugar Art Museum, near the Åsgårdstrand shores where Munch found his motifs for these paintings, during the exhibition ‘Love’s Beach’ in 2010. A small gallery, housing only 60 persons pr. concert, each piece was performed in front of ‘its own’ painting. In connection with the release of the Munch Suite on CD, Kraggerud has developed an exclusive concert performance where the paintings are projected in chamber halls – and the interest for the concept is massive. The prospect of experiencing musical interpretations of Edvard Munch’s artworks in real time, with the composer and soloist as curators, opens for uncharted and exiting connections between the artwork and the audience.
