Almost immediately on completion of her vocal studies in Oslo, Paris and Copenhagen, Bergen-based soprano Mari Eriksmoen was offered to sing Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos (Strauss) at Theater an der Wien. She made her debut at The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet as Adele in Die Fledermaus and in 2013 she appeared as Waldvogel in Wagner’s Siegfried at the prestigious Teatro alla Scala in Milano.

A confident and versatile concert singer, Eriksmoen has recently made her debut with The Berlin Philhamonic Orhestra and appeared at the Zürich Opera and at the Amsterdam Opera.

For the recital in Troldsalen she has carefully picked a repertoire with works by Norwegian composers Ludvig Irgens Jensen, Agathe Backer Grøndahl og Edvard Grieg.

Christian Westergaard is a Copenhagen based collaborative pianist, who works with leading Danish and Scandinavian singers. He has performed in venues such as Wigmore Hall, Musikhalle, Hamburg and is a recording artist for Dacapo Records. He is educated at The Royal Danish Academy of Music, Copenhagen.
