Slåttepiano with Ingfrid Breie Nyhus

Hardanger fiddle tunes on Grieg's grand piano.

Pianist Ingfrid Breie Nyhus has long had a passionate interest in piano music inspired by Norwegian folk music. On the piano in Grieg's Villa she performs contemporary piano interpretations of traditional Hardanger fiddle tunes, (Norwegian slått, plural slåtter). These tunes inspired many of Grieg's compositions.

Ingfrid Breie Nyhus recently released a solo trilogy of which the third record is named Slåttepiano. Rather than writing a thesis, she made the recordings for her doctorate at the Norwegian Academy of Music. Slåttepiano has been very well received by Norwegian and international critics alike.

'You have to hear this! Ms. Nyhus is a phenomenon!' the Gapplegate Review raves.

As a pianist, Ingfrid Breie Nyhus has been described as a virtuoso of timbre with luscious touch and rich nuances. Among the awards she has received for her performances and recordings is the coveted Norwegian Soloist Prize.
