- Yes, life is as strange as
folk songs. We don't know if
they were meant to be in major or minor key... Some of the melodies are exquisitely beautiful. At any rate I have written down chord progression that are outrageous. However,
in my defense I must say that they did not originate at the
piano, but in my mind.

BIOGRAPHIES  

VALEN TRIO

Ricardo Odriozola (violin), John Ehde (violoncello), Einar Røttingen (piano)

The group takes its name from the great Norwegian composer Fartein Valen. Formed in 2009, the Valen Trio has already collected impressive accolades from the press and public with trios by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Grieg. Valen trio also has several prominent Scandinavian composers writing new commissioned works for them. Their first CD, with works by Valen, Klaus Egge and Ketil Hvoslef (the latter two recorded for the first time), was recently released. See www.lawo.no for more information.

The Norwegian and Danish press writes:

…with Røttingen’s reliable, secure and clear piano part as the back-bone, Odriozola and Ehde found their way into the trio-playing, where there was never any disagreement as to the flow or character of the music, where everybody was there for the others, and where all were fully present as the outstanding soloists each of them are… we were sent home with a feeling of fullness and contentment.
Tore Mortensen, Nordjyske Stiftstindende, Denmark, July 2009

…. The concert became a great experience … Precision, joy, overflowing energy and forward drive are appropriate descriptions … A performance characterized by passion and love for the music that is being played.
Jan L. Jacobsen, Bergens Tidende, January 2010
