Annika Åsen talks about Kirsten Flagstad, Norway’s greatest soprano through the times. Kirsten Flagstad had a great and varied repertoire. In this talk the audience will hear many of the beautiful songs she performed during her extensive career. Many associate Flagstad solely with Wagner, but at the start of her career, she sang much else i.e. operettas. Today’s concert will offer arias from Flagstad’s enormous repertoire performed by three young sopranos. These participates in the Master Class professor Turid Karlsen holds as part of this year’s festival.
We would like to extend our thanks to Sparebank1 in Hamar for their great support and collaboration!
