OUT NOW | Violist Eivind Ringstad's New CD: "Correspondances"
The album is inspired by Peder Barratt-Due's piece with the same name, which was premiered at Edinburgh's Queens Hall by Eivind Ringstad and pianist David Meier
Rubicon Classics Records announced the release of Norwegian violist Eivind Ringstad's new album, "Correspondances."
"My inspiration behind the repertoire on this disc came after commissioning a new work by the Norwegian composer Peder Barratt-Due," said Ringstad. "I found the title of the new work 'Correspondances' so inspiring that I eventually wanted to make a program around the meaning behind it, which resulted in a great variety of works for viola and piano."
"This program is put together to show the versatility of the viola. The instrument is very well known for its dark and deep sound. However, I believe the viola also can be a very virtuosic instrument — mainly because of its captivating qualities in the higher register. I hope the listeners can get to experience something about the viola that they didn’t already know."
