Edvard Grieg Kor, nominated for a Grammy award, is a familiar participant in the Bergen International Festival. The ensemble's repertoi- re covers a wide range of genres. Among the composers who have dedicated works to the vocal group are Jonathan Rathbone and David Lang. In Håkonshallen they sing a version of Grieg's Four Psalms revised by Tyrone Landau. In connection with the nineteenth century publication of the Norwegian Hymn Book, composer Ludvig Mathias Lindeman travelled around the country collecting religious folk tu- nes. Grieg fell for the the 'moving depth and sincerity' of the songs, and based his opus 74 on them. This work – his last composition – re- mains a gem among late romantic sacred mu- sic. Tyrone Landau has revisited Lindeman's notation and adapted the tunes for the fiddle. In Håkonshallen Hardanger fiddler Silje Sol- berg joins Edvard Grieg Kor to perform Lan- dau's arrangement. The concert also marks the release of the choir's first solo album.
