"Scandinavian Accents": Recital for Flute & Piano 
Elivi Varga, flute 
Rollin Wilber, piano 
Composers and themes from Scandinavian countries form the basis on which to present this richly styled recital of works worthy of savoring. 

For more information on this concert, or to view the full repertoire, please visit Fine Art Music Company's website. 

Music by composers of Scandinavian heritage:
Howard Hanson, American composer of Swedish origin 
Edvard Grieg, famous Norwegian composer 
Johan Helmich Roman, Swedish Baroque composer 
Jean Sibelius, famous Finnish composer 
Laura Netzel (pseudonym, N. Lago, needed for publishing), in a rare work by this late-Romantic, Finnish woman composer 
Erland von Koch, Swedish composer 
Scandinavian source: 
This recital culminates in the remarkable “Variations on a Theme by Grieg,” a work by Walter Gieseking, based on a musical theme by Norway’s Edvard Grieg. It's a major work for flute and piano, rarely heard and with few existing recordings. While the composer for this work (the great, 20th century German/French pianist, Walter Gieseking) is not Scandinavian, his usage of a theme by Edvard Grieg as the basis for this powerful and beautifully written set of variations is in keeping with our concert’s concept. We believe this may be one of the first times this work has ever been performed in Philadelphia. 

Please join us for this highly unusual recital, where we will speak about these wonderful, musical-cultural histories!
