Description

Jazz pianist and composer Jan Gunnar Hoff is joined on this recording by classical mezzo soprano, Marianne Beate Kielland in a selection of traditional songs, reworked with a modern twist. The songs on this recording include Jerusalem, Love's Secret and The Lamb with texts by William Blake, arranged by Jan Gunnar Hoff. Gramophone wrote of Marianne Beate Kielland: "The mezzosoprano is quite outstanding: strong, firm, sensitive in modulations, imaginative in her treatment of words, with a voice pure in quality, wide in range, and unfalteringly true in intonation." Jan Gunnar Hoff was born in Bodø in 1958 and began classical piano lessons at age ten. He studied in the jazz programme at Trondheim Conservatory of Music and later was a student of composition at the Norwegian Academy of Music and has enjoyed a stellar career on an international platform. He is currently professor at the Arctic University of Norway (UiT) and the University of Agder.
