Organist meets blues guitarist, down-to-earth meets exalted, when the radar couple Iver Kleive and Knut Reiersrud play a Christmas concert in Fartein Valen, Konserthuset."After the Christmas album from Bethlehem with Sondre Bratland in 1992, I was really determined not to make more Christmas on record", Knut Reiersrud told NTB when the album Night in December was released in 2018. "But then we found so many great opportunities in this December music, Iver and I. It has so far served as self-therapy in an increasingly dark autumn. Now it comes out to those who want to listen. Hope there are many. "Based on Norwegian folk tunes, hymns and their own compositions, Iver and Knut have added a new dimension to traditional church music. Many people remember their releases Blue Choral (1991), Skyscraper (1996) and Grace over Grace (2006) as beautiful bauts over the long-running civilization collision between European church music and African-American rhythm and sense of tone.Get excited about the diversity and distinctiveness of these beautiful melodies performed in exciting interplay between two of the country's foremost musicians. Welcome to a magnificent and sacred moment this pre-Christmas Sunday in December.MUSICIANSKnut Reiersrud, guitars / string instruments / vocalsIver Kleive, organDURATION(coming)ORGANIZERStavanger Jazzforum
