Norwegian Memories - Viking Concerto
- (MIRTO / KROGSETH / FLORENCE STRING ENSEMBLE)
- Format: CD
This CD brings together three works for guitar and strings which are inspired by the majestic landscape of Norway, it's fjords, mountains, springs and woods, the silence and mystique. Italian guitarist and composer Giorgio Mirto wrote his Concerto Norwegian Memories on the basis of old legends and fairy tales. The "Viking Concerto" by Norwegian composer Gisle Krogseth is a 20th century pendant of Peer Gynt, it's three movements named "Returning from Abroad", "Night in the Woods" and "A Feast, a Fight and a Funeral". Played with great intensity by the master himself, Giorgio Mirto, accompanied by the Florence String Ensemble.
