Giovanna Pessi | Susanna Wallumrød
Timeless music through the centuries.

The resulting CD, If Grief Could Wait, has been described as "nothing less than sensational" and "one of the best records of the year". Most of the songs are composed by British medieval composer Henry Purcell, but there are also some Wallumrød originals on the record. The late folk rock singer Nick Drake and Leonard Cohen are also among the contributors to the repertoire. Susanna Wallumrød is best known for her solo albums, but also for being one half of the duo Susanna & The Magical Orchestra together with Morten Qvenild. Last year, she released a more rock-inspired record with texts by Gunvor Hofmo. Through her collaboration with Giovanna Pessi, Wallumrød reveals new sides to herself as a vocalist by adjusting her voice to the various songs. Pessi's exceptional baroque harp play has previously featured on many different ECM recordings. Pessi was a long-term member of Christian Wallumrød Ensemble, which was led by Susanna's brother. We can expect a wonderful final concert at this year's Moldejazz.

Susanna K. Wallumrød (vocals), Giovanna Pessi (baroque harp), Marco Ambrosini (nyckelharpa), Jane Achtman (viola da gamba).
