This beautifully produced 2 CD program on the life and poetry of Norwayâs great playwright, Henrik Ibsen, the âFather of the Modern Dramaâ, is informative as well as entertaining. That Ibsen wrote poetry as well as plays is not well known, and his poems are narrated here for the first time in English. The text has been written by Trond Woxen, and produced and edited by Astrid Ogilvie. The poems presented here have all been translated by Trond Woxen from the original Norwegian. Several of these poems are accompanied by the haunting tones of the music of Norway's well-known composer, Edvard Grieg.
The CD is narrated by Trond Woxen who is an actor (Screen Actors Guild, American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, Equity) as well as a director, writer, and translator. Trondâs masterly translation of Ibsenâs long poem "Terje Vigen" has received much acclaim, and he is well known for his dramatic renditions of the poem in both Norwegian and English. In addition to "Terje Vigen", Trond has translated many of Ibsenâs other poems such as: Kong Håkons Gildehall (âThe Grand Hall of King Håkonâ); Abraham Lincolns Mord (âThe Murder of Abraham Lincolnâ); Lysredd (âAfraid of the Lightâ); Spillemenn (âFiddlersâ); En Svane (âA Swanâ); Borte (âGoneâ); En Fuglevise (âA Birdsongâ); Stamboksrim (âAlbum Memoriesâ); and Med en Vannlilje (âWith a Waterlilyâ). These may all be found on the CD.
Also featured on the CD as the female voice is Astrid Ogilvie. She has a BA in Scandinavian Studies, and a PhD in Environmental Sciences, and is a Professor at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She has also studied speech and drama.
Kathleen Fagre plays piano on the CD. She is a lively performing songwriter, piano teacher and hammered dulcimerist, as well as a published composer of instrumental, choral and solo vocal music.
