Håvard Gimse - Schubert & Schumann CD 

Håvard Gimse (from Kongsvinger, Norway) has steadily established himself as one of Scandinavia's leading pianists. In 1987 he won 1st prize in the "Jugend Musiziert Competition" and Gimse is recipient of the prestigious "Grieg Prize" (1996), the "Steinway Prize" (1995) and, most recently, the Norwegian Sibelius Society´s "Sibelius Prize" (Nov 2004).

His distinct and rich musical palette reflect his artistic strength, experienced from early years and developed through extensive and varied concert activities. His repertory is equally broad, already including more than thirty concertos performed with orchestra, numerous solo works and chamber music programmes. As a recitalist and chamber musician Gimse has succesfully performed in Wigmore Hall "Young Master´s Series", Carnegie Hall Weill Recital & Zankel Halls, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, St.Petersburg Philharmonic Great Hall, Suk Hall Prague, Konzerthaus Berlin, New York Frick Collection and National Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.

On his latest album, Gimse is joined by the talented young violist Henning Kraggerud for Schubert's popular Arpeggione Sonata, a work originally composed for piano and guitarre d'amour, or arpeggione, a short-lived, fretted, 6-string instrument invented by Johann Georg Stauffer in the 1820's.

Gimse then turns his attention to Schumann's Kinderszenen Op. 15 and Schubert's piano sonata D 784, two nicely solo piano contrasted works.
