Edvard Grieg & Franz Berwald – Ana Markovina’s new CD with the Schleswig-Holstein Symphony Orchestra has been released: NORDIC MUSIC

Ana-Marija Markovina’s new CD with the Schleswig-Holstein Symphony Orchestra conducted by Peter Sommerer was released in May.  On the programme are, among others, two major piano concertos.

Gerhard Krammer in the classical music programme ‘Des Cis’:

“The so-called ‘Nordic Music’ has its fixed stars: Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto with those striking opening bars, for example. A new recording lets ‘these old familiars’ shine again in a new light. The Schleswig-Holstein Symphony Orchestra under its chief music director Peter Sommerer expresses a very compact and yet clearly drawn sound that is very well suited to these compositions.

And it is a formidable ground on which the pianist Ana-Marija Markovina can confidently create, sing, dream and dance, with Grieg and also with Franz Berwald.

Gerhard Krammer, ‘Des Cis’ (Österreich 1), 23 May 2019
